As some of my friends are aware, after long deliberation, I've decided to part with my 56 megapixel medium format setup. With work and a young family, despite my best efforts, I'm simply not using the system nearly enough to justify my investment in it.
I would like to hold off on sales of individual line items until after the camera and back have sold. The camera/back buyer will get first crack at the rest of the system, and following that, remaining components will be offered for sale.Leaf AFi-II 10 kit:
* Leaf AFi camera; updated to latest firmware by DHW (3.10a3)
* Leaf AFi-II 10 56 megapixel digital back; updated to Leaf's new firmware for updated UI and faster performance
* Rollei/Schneider Xenotar AFD 80mm f/2.8 PQS lens + Bay VI to 67mm B+W F-Pro MRC UV filter
* Leaf AFi waist level finder
* Original batteries + 6 additional 3rd party batteries
* Original tethering cables, manuals, cleaning cloths
* Leaf hard case
This kit has a Bill Maxwell Precision Optic custom Hi-Lux focusing screen with diagonal split recticle for precise focus. It is not engraved (so if you upgrade to a II-12 or any other digital back someday, you will not need to buy a new $400 screen)--it has an acetate overlay indicating framing.Asking $22K USD or €16.2K OBRO.

, with, at most, minor signs of normal, careful use, except for the edge of the camera's hand grip, where a small crack in the plastic was repaired. This happened almost a year ago; the camera has never been dropped or abused, but after packing in my bag, I retrieved it on location with ~3mm long crack in the gray plastic at the top right corner of the handle grip. It has been repaired with glue and there are no functional issues whatsoever. If this is an issue for you, please let me know and we can work something out. I will post pictures later this week.
Apologies for the $tbd's; I promised myself I would get this gear listed this weekend, and I am about to travel for a couple of days on business, so I put this up. I will be online, so I should be able to keep in touch over the next couple of days.
For those who don't know me, I have bought and sold several medium format systems here, at GetDPI and on eBay, where I enjoy a 100% reputation
. We are a small community and I trade like a gentleman, expecting the same. If you are local to the Seattle, WA area, you may visit and inspect any of the gear before purchasing. Please let me know first, to arrange a suitable time.
Funds paid must clear before equipment ships. Please let me know if you have any questions.
With kind regards,
