I want to but a Fresnel glass, and saw this one on the bay:

since I never used one before, I can't judge by the picture its quality. can someone shed some light on that?

Will probably be the same as those on current Chinese LF cameras, if so, the price is average - Shen Hao fresnels sell for about the same. The Shen Hao fresnels are IMHO not in a class with expensive original Sinar or Linhof fresnels, but they are no worse than any of the other affordable after-market fresnels I've ever seen, and doubtlessly superior to cheap reading loupe fresnels.

ok, that doesn't sound so good....:)

compared to this:
http://www.calumetphoto.com/eng/product/cambo_4x5_fresnel_lens/cb0218

regarding price-performance ratio, is it better to get the calumet one?
