If I could find a 360mm Heliar in a shutter, I'd be in hog heaven.

    Looks like I'm not the only Heliar fan here. Now I have a question. I've never had a CE, but do own a 12 in. Velostigmat II. I really like the classic look given by that lens, too. So, both Kodak CE and Velostigmat II are Tessar types? I also have a Zeiss 165mm Tessar, but it gives a different look than the Velostigmat. But then, I haven't had enough experience yet with the latter.

    There are tessars and then there are tessars.
    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.

    No... no LF photos in a very long time. I don't get around very well these days. Also, I learned in my youth to conserve materials. I moved from 135 to 6x4.5 to 6x7 to 4x5 and shot less as I switched to larger formats. I can't travel far and I just haven't seen much here worthy of using film to document... an old bridge and a couple of dilapidated buildings, maybe. I'll shoot something soon.

    Even after I sell several things it'll be awhile before I have any spare cash. I have a few more pressing things to take care of. However, after reading all the comments here, I'm tempted to buy a 12 inch Commercial Ektar to compare with a 300mm Fujinon-C. I do want coated lenses... even the simple 4 air-spaced designs. I doubt I can afford a set of coated quality Dagors.

    Yes, Corran... I will eventually take LF photos.
