I recently got a used 210 Geronar 6.8 in good shape. What can you tell me about this lens? Why are they discontinued? What are it's strenghs/ weakness. (I.E. po or coverage, prone to flair?)

Roy, on the Large Format page under the "lenses" heading and then "A variety of modern and older lenses" the 210mm, f6.8 Rodenstock Geronar is listed as having a 230mm circle of coverage, 3 elements in 3 groups and a list price of $425 in 1 984. I haven't used or seen test results on the lens but it's most likely it wa s discontinued when newer and better configurations came along.
