I paid a little over $100 for mine, but I've never had a reason to feel cheated. In fact, if I have a complaint, it's that the lens is too sharp for most of the work I do (blurry, funky stuff.) It certainly covers 8x10 with any movement I can throw at it. No shutter I've found fits it, but ask the experts. I use it with an old hat or a Packard.
