    We usually call lenses that cover 100 degrees wide angle lenses regardless of the format they're used on.
    If the second part is true, then I've learned something new and I humbly withdraw my cocky sounding response.

    Dan, I wonder if you have the direct address in a cache or hosts. file
    It would appear that the ISP hosting www.subclub.org recently changed, and that the previous ISP had a very long TTL for claiming "ownership" of that domain, so some people's DNS servers will be holding onto outdated information until their TTL expires and they try again.

    Here's a way to see the name servers:

    % dig +noall +answer -t ns subclub.org
    subclub.org. 21474 IN NS ns1.meganameservers.com.
    subclub.org. 21474 IN NS ns2.meganameservers.com.
    subclub.org. 21474 IN NS ns3.meganameservers.com.

    and check one:

    % dig +noall +answer -t A www.subclub.org @ns1.meganameservers.com
    www.subclub.org. 86400 IN A 69.49.101.19

    86,400 seconds is a 24 hour TTL, which is quite long. In short, it should start coming back within a day or so for most people. If you use google's name servers, or have Comcast (which I have at home), you should be set.

    You might, but I don't. I reserve the term "wide angle" for small format lenses that take in, well, a wide angle on their associated cameras.

    I usually call LF lenses with large image circles (for their focal lengths) "wide field."

    I've got a Caltar HR 300mm f/5.6 lens. I researched it and found that the HR stands for Horseman. Topcon made lenses for Horseman so it was made by Topcon. The 300 is said to be pretty rare. Now all I have to do is find someone who thinks all things rare are worth a lot of money to sell it to.

    Nope. The only Kodak lens I've ever owned was whatever one they put on my 127 Brownie Starmite in the early 1960s.

    I associate "wide field" with "wide field ektar" lens'

    Anyway, glad we sorted all the labeling out... Lol
