    Um, you mean 210, don't you?

    Agree, mine is excellent too but it is a little flary, needs a hood. I retired it in favor of a 210/7.7 dagor type that's not quite as sharp but is much less flary.

    I do indeed.

    I haven't experienced the flare as you have, So far I find it pretty excellent.

    Well, I was with you until I shot mine against that 210/7.7 dagor type. Same everything (subject, illumination, film (E100G), apertures, and shutter) and the f/7.7 whatsit gave better saturated colors. The GRII has a little veiling flare. Still an excellent lens, IMO, but has to be used a little carefully in situations where, in particular, the sun isn't far outside the frame.

    That said, mine isn't perfectly spotlessly clean inside. I had another one that was dirtier but shot as well so I'm not sure the internal schmutz is a problem.

    I have 210 & 260mm and use them on 8x10 they are good performers! But I use it with a lens shade!
