    I also have an older B&J 8x10 that I'm restoring (it works, but needs some fixin). I got a Turner Reich triple convertible for something like $300.00, you should be able to find something on ebay, but check Midwest Photo Exchange also, they usually have a couple listed pretty inexpensively.

    I'm curious to hear what you're fixing on yours, please email privately if you want to discuss restoration.

    Something like the Turner Reich triple convertible mentioned might be nice, because it will give you a range of focal lengths. The venerable Kodak 12" Commercial Ektar is also a good affordable normal lens for 8x10".

    You might also consider an old 12" Goertz Dagor. I bought one a few years back for about $250--it still works fine.

    FWIW I have a Turner Reich 12/19.7/25" in a Betax # 4 for sale for $200.00 if you're interested. I can send jpgs.
