Not really alt, but this is the last lens on my current wish list (!), so I am adding it here anyway: Nikkor AF-S 300/4 IF-ED.

Hi,

From an estate sale this morning: Goerz Dagor 8-1/4 attached to a Century #1 Field 4x5 with perfect bellows. Slow speeds off just a bit, but the glass is flawless...

What?? No pictures from it yet?
Oh and what type of memory does it take?
Looks nice Edd

I got a 58mm Biotar. I'm thinking of sending the 3 exterior pieces out for black anodizing.






It took a long time to get this back together, but it will be a fun lens.

Not sure, but it did come with a half-dozen wooden "Not-So-Fast" cards...

Got some 4x5 Delta 100 ready though...

FD 70-210/4

Thanks James, might even try it out this week if we get a decent snowfall here to cover up the dirty snow.

Peire: The FDn 70-210 f4 I had was pretty darn sharp, and I think "Bif" found it the same. It is now in Reno, NV on my youngest son's NEX. Good luck with it!

Regards,

Edd

Hi Edd,

You're right.After first shootout I decided to keep 70-210/4 FDn.It is sharp,has nice colour rendition and limited CA for a non apo corrected lens.

Just bought Canon FD 200/4 Macro.I'm quite curious.The lens seems to be a very nice piece of glass.Hope it doesn't produce much CA.I'm going to use it with NEXes but consider also buying glasless EF and Nikon adapters.Do you have any real life experience to share?
