Miscellaneous Photo Gear...
(updated, with most prices lowered 1/1/15)
Ultra Wide-Heliar 12mm f5.6 lens (with shade, viewfinder, and box).
The lens, shade,
and finder are in VERY nice condition. This lens is surprisingly sharp to the corners on film even
wide open, and it is VERY compact and light! It also works well (with inexpensive adapters) on
Sony NEX and on Panasonic, Olympus, and Black Magic MFT bodies (and likely also on other
digital mirrorless bodies). The viewfinder is surprisingly accurate for showing lens coverage with
full-frame cameras, although it does have strong barrel distortion. $595 for this 12mm lens, shade,
and viewfinder, in the original box. (Sold!)
Photo taken with the 12mm (to show the extreme perspective effects possible on full-frame):
645 6x4.5 SLR system with 645J body in very nice condition, standard
45-degree split-image rangefinder screen, 120 film insert, trigger handle, extra film insert
with case, latest 45mm f2.8 MF lens in VERY nice condition, 70mm f2.8 lens in VERY
nice condition (the leaf shutter doesn't work, but it still operates normally with the body's
focal-plane shutter), Mamiya lens shades for both lenses, and correct body and lens
caps - all for $465 (and these lenses are SHARP to the corners, even wide open!).
| 52mm Nikkor filters, VERY nice condition, one with the rare chrome
Nikkor black-rimmed UV filters are also available, like new, in various sizes, as are some
Nikkor lens shades (inquire...). Two Nikon PK-13 tubes, $35 each; PK-12, $45. All are
in VERY nice condition (but no caps are provided).
(The Nikon PK11A tube has been sold.)
MD-4 motor for F3, rough-looking, but functional, with AH-3 permanently
attached to the bottom, $55; Nikon MD-15 for FA, good condition, $45 (pictured),
Nikon MD-15 for FA, VERY nice condition (powers the body), not pictured - a tad
short of mint, $65.
SP 28-135mm f4-4.5 MF lens (nearly constant-aperture!), in VERY nice
condition, with needed shade. Sharp, wide-range lens, with unusually low CA on
digital bodies! Fits any MF camera body (and some AF bodies, but doesn't AF),
and also Panasonic and Olympus MFT bodies and Sony NEX with the addition
of the appropriate MFT or NEX adapter, if needed. $345, including an Adaptall II
Nikon mount (others can also be used).
4x5 6-Sheet Grafmatic
Holders, all good (not mint looking) and functional,
One Yankee 4x5 12-Sheet Tank and Basket.
35mm Reels and Assorted Sizes of Tanks, Including a Few 8-Reel
A Saunders 14x17 Easel
with 11x14 4-way adjustable blades. Perfect,
Lenses (most are
on Beseler 4x4 boards). The Componon S and Comparon are
equal in optical quality (and very sharp!), but they are optimized for different enlargement ratios
(6:1 instead of 4:1) - but are fine over very wide ranges beyond the optimum ratios.
^^ Schneider Comparon 150mm f5.6, very nice barrel, very slight internal haze (see note below!).
I'm open to reasonable offers on one, several, or all...
many, various size openings, some recessed,
Carriers for the 4x5 enlarger - 4x5, 645, 6x9, all nice
(figure a little less than 1/2 B&H new
