Someone should jump on this. A very good bellows and an even better lens. Note the number of aperture blades. There isn't a macro lens (Sorry VL owners) out there with that many blades. I have one similar and it produces smooth, round backgrounds and highlights.

Plus: the focal length of 105mm is great for bellows macro photography. My only question would be if the lens is light enough for proper focusing. And is this an automatic bellows - that is: does this bellows allow for focusing with the lens wide open and then shortly before shutter action closing to the desired F-stop? My Pentax-K bellows does that, and I find it very useful.

Good luck selling! (free bump!)

Thanks for the freebie bumps guys.
The bellows have been sold and I got to meet a forum member in-person. One heck of a nice individual with plenty of patience and FREE flash lessons.
