Hi

What would a 5x7 Linhof Tech in very good condition be worth.
I could buy one from an old photog which used it as his second camera.
Thanks!

One just went on eBay with two modern lenses for around $1200, which strikes me as a real bargain, but maybe that's just because there is less of a market for 5x7" than for 4x5".

It does seem extraordinary to think of anyone using it handheld with the rangefinder, in which case you might as well get a field camera with more movements.

This is a Tech. III, and I'm not using the rangefinder, but still... Especially with a 300mm/f:4.5 Xenar on it!

It only needs to be held steady for 1/50 of a second, which is the fastest shutter speed on that thing. After about 5 seconds my arms start shaking anyway...

It's not that heavy; only about 14 pounds - plus another two pounds of lens!

It was fun to have tried it, but I won't do it again. Soon, at least
