Just a heads up for anyone looking for a bargain lens. Don't know much about them...

"Our understanding is that these are the same model that was used to make the eyes for the Johnny 5 Robot in the movie "Short Circuit"."

Now that is very useful information.

I'm sure they're ok lenses, although I don't think they fit straight into a Wollensak shutter; anyone know better?

I use one as a macro lens with lens caps for shutter. At f/32 it is really nice.

Thanks for the tip.

I bought one, why not.

I will try that, shot some macro last night.

Good idea!

The lens is no longer available. SS said it was an old link and they sold out some time ago...

They even let me order it and then cancelled.

No biggie, it's the thought that counts!

Yup. I tried to order one from that link Friday afternoon. Bummer. They show up regularly on Ebay, but go for much higher prices.
