I just received a 15" f5.6 Wollensak Telephoto Raptar. The Yellow-dot version. What a beast it is. I paid only $35, being advertised as an enlarging lens. (whoever heard of a telephoto enlarging lens??)
So now I have a few questions:
1. It definately wont fit in my alphax shutter. Is there any shutter it will fit into or am I stuck with a speed graphic.
2. Does anyone use this lens? What are your thoughts on it? Also, I'd like to hear others experience with using mamoth hunks of glass!
3. Anyone have any experience with making their own shutters for big barrel lenses?
4. Is the yellow-dot version any different from a wc(wollensak-coated) version?
Thanks for any help!
