  1. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    Dear Ariel,

    There are inspiring books by good portrait photographers who typically do not reveal the technicalities, and there are technical books, e.g. on Scheimpflug, that do not explain how to...

    "If, I ever had to make a choice between using the 'Best' Lens for the Job...
    Or seeking the 'Best' Lighting for the Job -- I would always choose the very best Lighting. Thank-you!"

  4. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    The second edition of my review of portrait lenses is online. Changes with respect to the first edition are the following, along with a number of minor modifications.

    As promised, a review of a...
  5. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    Multiple points to be addressed, for which I change the order.

    The Lanthar.
    Thanks for reminding me of bleaching the glass in UV light. I had read it years ago, then forgot about it, and will...
  6. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    Point taken, thanks.
  7. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    Initially, the problems in the article were sparse and far between, and due to comments in this thread, they have been addressed in the revised version. How could the article be "full of problems"...
  8. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    Beautifully said!
  9. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    After the minor correction on the Fujinon-C lens type, which actually pertained its misnaming, not its performance, not a single technical error in my text has been pointed out by anyone.
  10. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    For the record, the lab that you find so comical is Kleurgamma, which has produced a large number of both digital and analogue prints for numerous museums and galleries in many different countries.
  11. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    You know very well that the subtle qualities of analogue prints get lost on the Web, but you're welcome to visit any upcoming exhibition of my work, where I usually have analogue and digital side by...
  12. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    Of course digital is then to be preferred, and it can be used for images impossible to achieve analogously. This seemed obvious to me, therefore I didn't consider mentioning it. For photographing the...
  13. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    In the article there is a photo of a lady being photographed through a window with a Sironar-S on 5x7". One of the best labs in my country scanned the negative and made a digital 5x7" print on their...
  14. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    For a second edition of the portrait lenses test, I'll review a 210mm Dagor, which is now on its way from Japan, and perhaps my Littman with an Ysarex 127mm, if anyone is interested. I will also add...
  15. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    After reading in another thread that many putative gold rim Dagors offered for sale have fake gold rims, and noticing that gold dots cost more than a small helicopter, I bought a gold-less 210mm...
  16. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    Sounds good, seems that I'll have to save up some money and buy one! Or should I sample from several decades?
  17. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    It's perfectly fine to take photo's of faces only, if you wish, and my test results equally apply to that interpretation of portraits. For 8x10", my results suggest that Tessars, Dialytes (not MC),...
  18. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    Yes, and you rightly understood that this sentence was indeed a personal opinion that neither needed to be repeated (by me) nor should influence others' purchasing decisions (and I'm sure I'm not...
  19. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    To lower the price of the Lanthar, I also said that it's image circle is too small for front movements, it's colors are bad, it's less sharp than the Sironar-S, and it's radio activity will kill you...
  20. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    Those and other old lenses are great, and for people interested, I explicitly referred to Galli's webpage, so it was not an omission that I wasn't aware of. I had drawn a (vague) boundary at around...
  21. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    At enlargements of half a meter, the difference in sharpness and grain between 6x6cm and 4x5" is already very clear, and becomes ever clearer the larger the prints are made, even to lay people, so it...
  22. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    I had my lens cleaned and serviced first, as the shutter was in-accurate. When I then mounted it, I could clearly feel that the rear part well-fitted the shutter, so this might not have been the...
  23. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    Opposite to "sampling of whatever lenses there were at hand", my sampling was quite thoughtful and based on extensive research, although confined to (approximately) post-1930 lenses, and with some...
  24. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    The Fujinon brochure (higher up in this thread) convinced me that the Fujinon-C is a Dialyte, and I changed the text accordingly. Thank you guys for pointing this out to me. It also shows that...
  25. Re: New article: Large format lenses for portraits

    As I said in the first sentence, I tested a series of lenses "towards their usefulness for portraits in the broadest sense". Disassembling them to verify if, say, a 300mm Fujinon-C is a Dialyte or a...
