    Question FS: Cambo Schneider 72mm WDS 566

    This is the second lens I picked up shortly after I bought my Cambo WRS 1000 and it has been sitting idle for way too long.

    The Bad - I removed the bumpers years ago and in doing so screwed up one corner. This is cosmetic only and in no way interferes with the function. I had given thought a year ago of sending the lens in to have the panel changed and add movement however I just never have gotten around to it.

    The Good - Besides the cosmetic everything. The glass is very clean, the shutter is perfect; as is every other aspect.

    The lens is old and has been used but not abused (if you look past the corner).

    A shiny new lens with bumpers runs approximately $3,500. I'm asking $1,800 which includes PayPal fees and the first $25. towards shipping (FedEx, insured) with the buyer picking up the rest.

    If you think about it, by buying this lens and sending it in to Cambo for the movements which run around $1,500 you are well ahead.

    Great lens for the Cambo. The HR70 behaves very similarly to the HR40, meaning it is very easy to use! Great personality.

    Oops. Sorry SK72-----meaning lighter and smaller, but very similar.

    Ummmm, Ken thanks for the push - this is the SK72 not the HR70 however it still is a very nice lens.
