I have been offered this for $850. The glass looks great, it is in what appears to be a pretty new #3 shutter. I am told it covers 8x10.

I currently use the HUGE Schneider 360/5.6 as my normal 8x10 lens. This looks to be a good alternative at about one one-hundredth of the weight of the one I use.

Is it a good deal? Would it be a good "normal" for the 8x10 and a slightly longer lens for the 5x7? I do all B&W so multicoating isn't an issue for me.

Thanks.
