    Fuji lenses are every bit as good as German lenses or Nikkors. Price differences were more due to company import policy and exchange rates. At one point, when the Yen was low and the Mark was high, I sold my German lenses and replaced them with Fujis and Nikkors. Present used lens pricing just reflects price and demand, and what sellers imagine they can get, and that fluctuates. Some lens formulas changed over the years as specialty glass types became restricted. Copal shutters never seem good at the very highest speed; but nobody uses that anyway. I have Copal black shutters, silver shutters, and even old 3s ones. They're all well within a third of a stop at all other speeds. But I use a shutter tester and avoid funky-looking bargain lenses.

    What Drew? No Jim Galli budget soft focus lenses for you?

    I agree with you about owning a shutter speed tester. They are useful!
