    QUICKLY... How Much Should I Pay For a M- 210mm Graphic Kowa??

    As per the title...

    This one is coated and mounted in a late all black Copal shutter. I'm looking for a lens to cover 5x12.

    Not to appear impatient but I'm ready to pull the trigger on one. Anyone know if $595 is too much??

    In barrel it's usually sold for ~$150. I bought one in barrel for $120. A new copal #1 is ~$300, total ~$450.

    400.00 max in this market, and just work up from there if you have to.

    Does the kowa screw directly into a copal?

    Thank you, Nathan / Rob. Anyone know where I can find one for a fair price?

    BTW, I'm not STUCK on getting one of these. I just want something in a reliable shutter that will cover 5x12 with a bit of wiggle room and be sharp all the way to the corners at 8x enlargement. And I don't want it to weigh as much as a boat anchor. I suppose I'm a bit picky too.

    I can't afford a 210 SS XL... and other options can be difficult to find for a reasonable price. I've found a couple of SS HM's but they're fairly heavy at 1500+ grams.

    I suppose #1 on my list would have to be a Apo Sironar-W but they're very hard to find.

    I don't remember... only that it covers 5x12. Aren't the Computar/Kyvytar/Kowa all the same lens under different brand names? Or am I I kunfyoozed again?
