    I have 6x9 Bessa RF and after a Skopar 105 lens and shutter, or for that matter a Heliar in same focal length in shutter, coated or uncoated

    You'd probably get a complete Voigtlander 6x9 camera with a Color Skopar for less than a 105mm Skopar or Heliar lens on it's own. Sounds illogical but many ebay sellers get higher prices taking the lenses off and selling them separately.

    Yes I have been looking for a camera and lens combo, not seen anything yet, one will turn up at some time on eBay hopefully.

    Regards

    Patience usually pays off in the long term. Meanwhile it may be worth finding an alternative 105mm if you want to use the camera itself. I've picked up two Ross 105mm f3.8 Xpres lenses for a bout £5 each in the past (in shutters), and I've seen other 105mm lenses sell quite cheaply.
