Just checking again now, the two active exakta mount ones listed are both a bit over 3 grand with best offer available and have been sitting unbought for a while now. One has light cleaning marks, the other looks clean. So yeah, the the 9 grand figure is definitely way way way too high.

Last auction went for close to 3 grand with glass perfect except for some easily removed oil.

Lots of people (Kevin Scamera, for example) offer items on ebay for waaaaaay more than they are worth.

Actual completed sales show prices between 1500 and 3000 for exakta mount samples of this lens.

"Bonjour" gentlemen ...

I went this morning to a photo swap/expo at Aulnay-de-Saintogne and picked up a few goodies.

But, what's more interesting is that I took the Angénieux 90/1.8 with me to collect some interesting info. I showed it to a "veteran" vendor (that I trust) and the lens is an Exakta mount that has been converted to Rollei ... he was kind enough to show me a real Exakta mount that he had and "bingo", almost a perfect match. So thanks to his kind input, I am pretty sure about that aspect now.

What's more interesting is that I presented the lens and body to a "professional buyer" (see first image with "Achat" sign) at the swap and he offered me a nice sum for it despite "bad mouthing" that condition of the front element and the altered mount ... an offer of 600€ is not bad IMHO. I did not bite since I plan to take the Angénieux to the Paris swap in June to see what can get for it ... this one may very well finance my "dream project" for a nice 67 kit ...

Here's some images from Aulnay ... and still pinching myself for the thrift store find of the Angénieux ... yes, I really seemed to have "lucked out" big time here on this acquisition.

OK, gentlemen. I need your help.

What do you think ... Exakta mount converted to Rollei QBM ?

The trouble I would have with the lens, is bringing myself to sell it. But then I already own a Pentax 67, so perhaps my temptation would be less. Though a 67 II would be a nice addition.

To the previous posters, yes I agree the scratches and the mount modifications do lower the value. But it was to note that one should not be scared away from some types of imperfections, nor accept a low ball price.

Which one of these two will you keep? The Contax 137 MA or the black Spotomatic. I have way too many precious but unused film gear

In order...
Yes,
Yes,
Yes you are.

It would hurt to pick. I would pick them both, you are self punishing for no good reason. But if I had to pick I would take the Contax, for no other reason than I like the red. Everything I own is black or silver. So the red is a real interesting camera to me.

The Contax is known for having a frail original body covering and many (most?) surviving examples have been redone. I believe this Contax has one of Aki-Asahi's $14 USD kits. He has them for a wide range of cameras and you could probably "red" one of yours if you like. He has many nice materials.

Aki-Asahi Camera Coverings

He can make a kit from any of his available materials, not just the selections listed for a particular camera model. Here is one of my Spotmatics in "Red Lizard Embossed" (actually cowhide made to look like lizard).

My latest rescue case. An Ensign 220 Auto-Range. Coupled rangefinder and 6x6 or 6x4.5 frames.

Sweet camera, most of the time I prefer it to the Zeiss




And a pair of tiny range finders. Pacemaker Speed Graphic 23, from the first series of 500, around '47. Century Graphic 23, from around '65. The Speed has a CZJ Tessar 3.5/10.5cm, probably a cherished lens of the first owner -- the Ektar, if it was one, was probably 'better' - and he took off the front shutter body release mechanism.
The Century has the 80/2.8 Xenotar, which is an awesome lens.

Looks like a Linhof anatomical grip on the SG at right. I also note the bar atop the rangefinders for a Kalart-style flash (my first flash gun, looking bigger than the cameras on which I used it).

I was just gifted a Super Ikonta 532/16. I don't particularly like this model. This camera needs a cleaning and otherwise seems to work ok.
It has the red T tessar Opton 2.8 80mm lens, with black front standard.
Anyone interested in a trade?

I would like to get a wide angle lens in a shutter for a 2x3 press. 65mm or maybe a 75mm, the 65mm is what I really want.
Any interest?

I was thinking the same thing. The 2x3 Graphics have always intrigued me.
