I have a 135mm Fuji f/5.6W which is my favorite lens. It's 30+ years old, in Seiko shutter. Very sharp with great coverage. The whole Fuji line has a very good reputation.

The one you're looking at sounds like a bargain...if there are no issues. Be sure and check the shutter speeds and look at the glass for signs of separation or fungus.

If you search the forum re: Fuji lenses you'll find plenty of information.

I have several Fuji lenses; they are excellent. I have no concerns about buying them.

LF guidelines:

Be sure to give a descriptive title to your question. For people searching or browsing the archives, a nonsensical or uninformative subject (like "Oops!", "Read this!", or even "Lenses") just makes it harder for people to find answers to questions.

I use a Fuji 250mm, not too heavy and perfect for my needs.

That's well below where they usually sell for a clean pristine late model example. Either a bargain or an lens with issues.

Do your homework!

With used modern lenses for large format, condition is far more important than design and build quality. All modern large-format lenses are excellent when in good condition.

This price is excellent, but not too good to be true. 150's are the cheapest and most common of all large-format plasmat designs, with 210's being a close second. Getting them for a couple of hundred dollars or a bit less isn't uncommon.
