    Re: Schneider Super Angulon XL 47mm f5.6

    Thank you! A quick search reveals that Michael Fatali offered one from his "lens vault" a couple of years ago, for $4,995; can't tell if it sold.

    Re: Schneider Super Angulon XL 47mm f5.6

    Schneider's specification is 96 degrees coverage and 110mm image circle at full aperture, 120 degrees coverage and 166mm image circle at f/22.

    Linear distortion is very well corrected for such an...
  5. Re: What are the options for the ultra large format color photography?

    One of the things that sank in as I gained experience with large format, and especially with 8x10 and larger, is that even accepting standard DOF calculations based on idealized optics, standard CoC...

    I'd put it just slightly differently. Depth of field is a subjective attribute, the perception of which depends in part on how focus transitions are rendered by an optical design. One important...

    Re: Good starter lens for whole plate

    Not really. If dead-normal is your thing, something around 240-250mm (or 9.5-10 inches among the old glass) would be ideal. Among the modern f/5.6 plasmats, the quirk is that 240 is the point where...

    Jason, what's your usual preference for a main lens? Do you tend to see wide, normal or long? Also, do you care about modern vs antique rendering?
