    I agree with MOST of what has been written. I have a 300mm C, 400 T, and 600 T Fujinon. People have their own opinions -- with or without test results. My opinion is that you won't see any difference between results based on brand. The more important things are which lens meets your needs best, and how you use the lens. As mentioned, much depends on how much bellows you have. Depending on that, you might want to consider other lenses than the two you listed. You also need to consider weight, size, lens coating, filter size, and other features. That might be the deciding factor(s) for you -- as well as cost. The "T's" are a great option when you don't have enough bellows, but they come at a "price" -- much greater size and weight. There's no such thing as a free lunch.

    As mentioned, you won't see enough of a difference between a 300mm and a 360mm. I'd consider a 400mm as a minimum. Depending on all the factors above, I'd look more toward a 500mm or 600mm -- if those are options for your camera. See www.subclub.org/fujinon

    I have owned, and used, a 300/9 Nikkor-M for over twenty years. Once or twice in the '90s I rented a 500/11 Nikkor-T. I found it very sharp and contrasty, no surprise there. I lost a few pictures from wind-influenced camera vibration on my Zone VI- not the lenses' fault. I did find the 'reach' of the 500 an effective change from the 300- but not enough to purchase one for full-time use (yet).

    500mm f/7 (tele) KOMURA... requires little bellows extension, a very, very sharp lens, and can be had for a very reasonable price (Komura optics I feel a much underrated brand. 35mm and 6x6 format Komura optics not so great from personal experience and from what I have read, but their LF optics I have found to compare quite favorably to Schneider and Rodenstock brand optics). Purchased 500mm f/7 (tele) KOMURA a few years ago and it has never let me down.

    I don't use Tele lenses for LF, but have seen plenty of big prints by nitpicky practioners with ample funding but limited Technika bellows who went the Fuji 400T route. There must be a reason.

    Congratulations, enjoy it ! All these glasses were good, but a 400 is a 300+30% (aprox), so a good progression for a kit of lenses.
