    Anyone interested in picking up a bellows type lens shade for a song?

    Check out the Lindahl shades on EBay, I picked up a beauty for 99 cents, almost new and works a treat on my MF and LF lenses. Also picked up an extension bellows for a couple of bucks as well.

    They are well made, (well not as good as the Hasselbald bellows shade), and will accept adaptors to 77mm.

    Thought I would pass this along as there are still a few up for grabs as well as the FX type accessories.

    Last year KEH had these all on sale. I picked up a couple. In normal KEH style the "excellent" came in it's orginal box and packaging and any other dealer would have called it "new" No idea what they are selling for on Ebay at the moment but when I bought mine from KEH what I saved on shipping from an Ebay seller almost paid for the shade. Plus I could pickup the right adapters.

    I'll point out a downside. Most of these shades aren't for wide angle lenses. I think only the shortest will handle a mild wide. The longers might even be too long for a normal lens.
