    FS: Arca Swiss F-Metric with Orbix Standard, Lenses, +++

    Up for sale is a complete mint Arca Swiss F-Metric system with micrometric Orbix front standard.
    I bought this system new, four years ago from the reputable German dealer Christoph Greiner.
    It's being sold because of the lack of being used, but not of being loved, then it is, as is all Arca equipment, very beautiful as well as top of the line gear.

    The prices that I paid for this system new are quite staggering and if anyone is interested in what this kind of gear costs new you can find them here:
    http://www.arca-shop.de

    I would like to sell the system as a complete package and I'm willing to offer this package at a staggeringly reduced price, for the lucky person looking for this kind of set.

    I'm located in Germany. I've been a member of this forum since it started and and I'm also a member of the LL forum and photo.net
    Also 100% ebay seller: mr.kipling

    Does your F-Metric have,

    141mm standards or the older 171mm standards?

    Micrometric Orbix with the knob, or regular Orbix without the knob?

    A picture showing the front standard would be very helpful...

    Hi Jack,

    The camera has 141mm frames. And yes the micrometric Orbix has a knob. It's tight with a smooth, good resistance and very finely geared.

    As you probably know, the frames on the Arca standards are made so that you can change them out. There's a small lever that when moved allows you to slide that frames off of the standards and so change formats in a matter of seconds. Very nice. The Orbix is built into the frame, not the standard, so if you buy a 5x7inch frame for the front standard, you'll lose the Orbix, not withstanding the 5x7 frame has it also. Same goes for all the frames.

    Here are some quick pics.

    Best,

    Kipling
