Miscellaneous Photo Gear...
(some prices lowered 12/06/12)
Bessa-R rangefinder camera body (39mm Leica screw lens mount, with built-in meter),
12mm f5.6 SUPER-WIDE lens (with shade, viewfinder, and boxes). Body has some VERY light
mars, but the lens, shade, and finder are perfect. This lens is surprisingly sharp to the corners even
wide open, and it is VERY compact and light! The finder is surprisingly accurate for showing lens
coverage, although it does have strong barrel distortion. (The 35mm lens shown on the body has
been sold.) $670 for all.
Photo taken with the 12mm (to show the extreme perspective effects possible):
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, so it operates normally with the body
focal-plane shutter), Mamiya lens shades for both lenses, and correct body and lens
caps - all for $565 (and these lenses are SHARP, even wide open!).
| 52mm Nikkor filters, VERY nice condition, one with the rare chrome
Two Nikon PK-13 tubes, $45 each. PK-12, $45. Rare PK-11A tube, $60. All are in
VERY nice condition (but no caps are provided). (The Nikon PN-11 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, $55 (pictured),
Nikon MD-15 for FA, VERY nice condition (powers the body), not pictured - a tad
short of mint, $90 (a mint FA body is available here...).
SP 28-135mm f4-4.5 MF lens (nearly constant-aperture!), in VERY nice
condition, with needed shade. Sharp, wide-range lens! Fits any MF camera
body (and some AF bodies, but doesn't AF) with the addition of the appropriate
Adaptall-2 mount (not supplied), $155 (add $25 for Nikon-mount adapter).
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
