    The market is strong for Karl Struss lenses. Both of these offerings lasted less than a day on ebay:

    Re: Some Soft Focus Lens Sales Information

    When I shoot 8x10 about 90% of the time it's wet plate. I've been building up a few portrait lenses for it over the past two years. Right now I have a 14 in. Darlot Petzval, 360mm Heliar (standard), and a 12 in. Velostigmat (standard.) On the way I have a Verito 14.5 in. that I just paid about $1150 for at auction. The first three lenses I was patient and got them at slightly below average price. The Verito was a tad higher than what seems to be the average price lately, not sure. I tried an Eidoscope earlier this year but just couldn't connect with it. I ended up getting the Heliar which I love. I might buy a Velostigmat 12 in. II to replace the standard one I have at some point, but I am happy with the standard one. The only other soft focus lens that is affordable and intrigues me is the Unar. The irony is I very rarely shoot portraits, have no studio, and virtually all of my photos are taken outdoors and rarely of people. Soft focus lenses do work well for many landscapes though.

    You might want to post particulars because eBay links to completed sales don't work for long. 30 days I think. They want you to pay for a service to research prices.

    The bidding for the Namias was quite ridiculous in the last few seconds. A very rare item - but identical with the more common anacromatique from Darlot, Ligney etc. An empty barrel for another Namias was offered at the same time - without any bidders. So perhaps someone was trying to assemble a complete lens from two “parts” lenses?

    I think the chance of this being OK is rather small. The photos were absolutely unhelpful and the special natural product (horse chestnut ��) UV filter unlikely to be still working - even it is present!

    My bid was for 311€ and I was very doubtful about making a bid even at that level!
