Okay, I just feel like talking again...

So here's a observation: I have noticed a large absence of anything "Super" when it comes to Graflex items. Very few cameras, just try finding an electric release lens board. Spare back, 15" lens rangefinder adapter, anything... Just not out there...

And the question:

Do you think it's because very few Super Graphics were made in comparison to the Pacemakers? Or possibly that owners of 'Super" anything just hang on to things and do not sell off as much as the Pacemakers?

It seems odd to me that the Super line was manufactured for at least 15 years and there's no lens boards out there. Or other-than-normal lenses (Super set up) available. Graflex did offer anything from a 65mm through the 15" tele lens on the Super. Where are they now??? Did the market collapse back then to the point of so little around now in the used market?

I doubt anyone would actually know the real answer to this, but it seems like there might be some opinions worth hearing...
