    Thanks Drew for your advice. I allways listened that the A 240 is a superb lens, but I have a limited budget. The W f 6,7 version is the cheapest and the one with larger IC, but the question is if its good enough for color transparency work. The 398 mm IC is tempting....

    Sorry, I can't help there. I shoot black and white.

    Pardon me for being an ignorant barbarian, but aren't all modern LF lenses fit for use with color reversal films? Please name one that isn't.

    The 6.7 is superb for color. I've used it for numerous Cibachromes. But when I first got it, I thought it was not sufficiently corrected for wavelength alignment, because in one print of a high altitude sunset, there were two distinct adjacent lines parallel to the shape of a ridge in front, one orange, the other purple. But then high up Kauai, where the air is also extremely clear, I noticed this phenomena with my own eyes, then again over Comb Reef in Utah. It was at that point I realized just what a good lens this was, because none of my prior lenses had been able to record it!

    As per the 240A, it's virtually apochromatic. So I wouldn't worry about any of the Fuji lenses under discussion with respect to color transparencies. But you do have to be concerned with the sheer contrast of Velvia in open sun. These are all contrasty lenses.

    OK Dan, youre right, but you know that multi coated lenses can have a better behavior with flare and therefore a better color rendition. I own 3 single coated Apo Ronars that have superb color rendition, but they are apo lenses, not the case of the Fujinon. Anyway, I shade lenses very carefully, so I decided to go with the 6,7. I was offered one in very good condition for almost a bargain price, and the generous image circle is a temptation.

    Thanks for your comments Drew. They have given me the last kick to go for the 6,7. Im aware of the wild behavior of Fuji Velvia, but after more than 25 years together we know each other well. I have a reasonable Velvia 5x7 frozen stock.
