    DAN!! The description of the Lens Vade Mecum alone was worth the price of admission. My money back in full. Love it.

    David, Jim, thanks for the kind words.

    David, I wrote the Ilex piece because I was housebound for the first half of the year -- kitchen renovation project gone very badly wrong -- and was bored.

    Jim, I know you're infatuated with the VM.

    Say Dan, why don't you add on a new room next. Then during that project you could do a similar piece on C.P. Goerz Am. Opt. Co./Goerz Optical Co., Inc. It could have a complete and rational list of serial numbers with years of production, the "real" story of the origins of the "Golden Dagor" and a bit on Schneider's reasons for buying the company in the early 70's. (Somehow I doubt that it was because they felt Dagor sales were eating in to their Symmar sales.) I feel sure the company records are somewhere in a storage unit in Hoboken...

    I'm tired of directing people to books. Too much typing. The books I recommend for closeup/photomacrography and that are generally recommended for LF photography are now in the list. No links, none is available as a free e-book.
