So basically what 40mm lens do you recommend I get when preferring to shoot at or near wide open and how will it compare to the nikkor 50/1.8 I already have?

Refurbished by me, $1350
or best reasonable offer
I bought this as a "beater" camera to refurbish for my own use. I made a new bellows -- faithful to the original design -- and mounted it on the original bellows frames. My photographic plans have changed, so I'm putting it up for sale.
As it is, the finish on the camera is in very rough condition, as you can see in the photos. It could use a thorough refinishing. The metal parts could use some polishing.
The bed was coming unglued due to pressure from a replacement bellows that was too thick for the camera. I re-glued the bed, but there was a bit of wood loss where the tripod socket had been. So I took a bed plate that I have and attached that to the bed. This reinforces the bed a bit and provides a tripod socket. The camera's extension functions were not affected.
I believe the metal parts are plated brass. In some places, the plating seems to be disintegrating, so polishing will probably rub the plating off and expose much of the brass. But this does need to be done because the texture of the plating prevents smooth operation of rise, tilts and swings.
As for the wood finishing, my intention was to refinish only the parts of the camera that really need it, such as the the bottom of the bed. The rest I was figuring to just clean up well and then put some coats of oil finish on it. This has worked well in other refurb jobs I've done, and preserves the aged color of the wood. It really improves the appearance of the camera, and adds layers of protection.
The camera is usable as-is, but really needs cleaning up at least.
Alternatively, I can do the refurbishing for the purchaser. This would take two to three weeks. Most of the time would be spent waiting for coats of wood finish to dry.
The good news is that the camera is complete with no missing hardware. It's missing the strap; I can make a new one, or it's possible to order a new one from Deardorff.
All movements and adjustments work as they should, except as noted above due to rough metal surfaces where the plating is marred. The bellows is brand new and mounted on the camera.
I have a complete set of new screws, bought from Deardorff, which would be installed as part of my refurbishing work. If you prefer to do the refurb yourself, you can have the set for an additional $30, which is less than I paid.
If you want to see an example of a refurbishing job I did, here's a link with before and after pictures of a Century Universal 8x10 I worked on recently:
The camera weighs about 12 lbs 3 oz. It measures about 12 x 15 x 4-1/2" folded up. So figure about 15 lbs shipping weight from 90027, in a box of about 16 x 20 x 9 inches.
Please Note: I wait for Paypal to clear to my bank account before shipping; this takes about 3-4 days.

Ralph Gibson Limited Edition Leica Monochrom
Only 35 pieces to be made available.
Leica has done it again it seems with a VERY limited edition Leica Monochrome kit which includes a specially designed Monochrom (different cosmetics) as well as a special 35mm Summilux ASPH included as well.
Limited to only 35 pieces I expect this Ralph Gibson limited run to be EXPENSIVE. I could not find any details on cost yet so if anyone knows, feel free to comment. It looks quite special, I must admit!
You can check out Ralph Gibson’s website HERE. The last time Leica did a special run with him was for his limited edition MP which I have never seen for sale used.
Ralph and his limited run MP from back in the day..these are just about impossible to find due to the scarcity of them
I'm going to see someone tomorrow who is selling a Kiev rangefinder model 2A, but I'm guessing it is a model 4A.
If you could help me identify this, please see my thread in the RF section: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum65/1...-want-buy.html
Bert from Holland
BTW: Sorry for posting this here as well, but I have little time before I visit him tomorrow and I would like to know in advance what I am buying.
