Graflex XL with 80mm f2.8 Zeiss Planar + Graflock + RH8 6x9cm back + spare body
Graflex XLRF (rangefinder) with 80mm f2.8 Zeiss Planar lens (Nr 4462639) and cap, Graflock adaptor, RH8 6x9cm back, grip (missing cable release and thumb screw) eye cup, and spare body w/ Graflock adaptor. This camera and lens combination allows super sharp images from the legendary Zeiss Planar lens and 6 x 9cm format back - 50% bigger than 6x6cm. I used it frequently when I was working in medium format and it made sharper pictures than my Hasselblad. Lens has slight polishing marks but is clean and clear - no fungus or haze, with reasonably accurate shutter speeds.
Please note that the XL cameras utilise a plastic or nylon? Focussing ring for the interchangeable lens system, with three nibs which run in grooves in the lens barrel - focussing was always a bit stiff with XLs. These are prone to breakage, and one of the nibs is missing on the main camera body, with all three missing from the spare body.
The camera is however perfectly usable now. The item "Graflex XL with 80mm f2.8 Zeiss Planar + Graflock + RH8 6x9cm back + spare body" is in sale since Friday, August 17, 2018.
