    Talking Awesome guide to vintage Kodak lenses

    I was so excited to find this guide to at Pacific Rim Camera to vintage Kodak lenses, I just HAD to share it with the group. I hope that a mod will turn this into a sticky or put it into the resources section. It contains specifications on many of the better large format Kodak lenses. Enjoy! http://www.pacificrimcamera.com/rl/00346/00346.pdf

    I wonder if the 8 inch Commercial Ektar shown in the table on page four is an error and really should be the 8 inch f/7.7 Ektar and listed elsewhere. The price list at the end doesn't have an 8 inch f/6.3 Commercial Ektar but does list the 8 inch f/7.7 in with the f/4.5 Ektars. Of course that caught my eye since I'd never heard of the Commercial Ektar being offered in that focal length.

    That chart on page 4 has a note right above it that the 8 inch is an f/7.7.

    Thank you, don't know why I didn't notice that part of the text before. Well I was scrolling down fairly fast and came to a table labeled "Kodak Commercial Ektar Lens f/6.3" and the first listing (before the 8 1/2 inch C.E.) is an 8 inch lens. I'd never heard of an 8 inch Commercial Ektar before. Then in the price list at the end they lump the 8 inch f/7.7 Ektar in with with the f/4.5 Ektars; here it's clear it's an f/7.7 lens.
