    Re: What are the 8x10 all-stars?

    For sharp images and big budgets I'd look at the following kit:

    150mm Super Symmar XL
    210mm Apo-Sironar-w
    300mm Apo-Sironar-s
    360mm Apo-Sironar-s
    480mm Apo-Sironar N or Apo Symmar
    600mm Apo Ronar MC

    Even for those long exposures, it is still convenient to have and means you don't have to worry about weird methods to start and stop exposure.

    This begs the question, what do you mean by Superstar? Do you want a Justin Bieber lens? Or a Phil Collins lens?
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.
