Often, such comparisons are not comparisons of what is possible, but of different standards that were applied to the items being compared.

I absolutely love the High Key shot in post #93.
As a new starter to 4x5 photography I am planning on using a pair of Symmars in their converted mode unfortunately both at f12 (180mm @ 315mm and 210mm @ 370mm) when I can find some info on how to convert them.
Excellent thanks, I removed the rear element and found that I got a focal length increase but nothing like I was expecting.
God forbid anyone would actually delve into the subject itself, exploring the wonder and diversity of human character.
