The leather handle is gone, anyone have any ideas of a good sub. or know of anyone that makes replacements.
$300 is easily doable, I bought a Fujinon W 180mm f/5.6 with 305mm of coverage for $265 on keh.com. The modern 210 is very common and you should be able to pick one up for less than $300--but my heart says you should get an old 8 1/2 dagor to use on that classic camera

If you need a replacement leather handle go to the local pet shop and pick up a leather dog collar--they should have some for very cheap.
