  1. Re: To do or not to do, shuttering an unique barrel lens

    Actually it was a kinda "etical" query whether or not to separate parts of an unique lens to put it in a shutter.....

    Re: Cooke series Viib 5 1/4 (133mm)

    I have been particularly interested in the Cooke Taylor-Hobson VIIb wideangle anastigmats ever since I first saw the tiny little 82 mm, which I don't have. However I have aquired a mysterious 133 mm...

  29. Re: Resolution of different focal lenghts of same lens

    Aren't digital backs smaller than sheet film, thus requiering shorter lenses and consequently deeper DOF ?
  30. Re: Resolution of different focal lenghts of same lens

    Certainly you are right. Only the query was a rather academical one and it seems to have inspired some information to surface that was unfamiliar to me.

  32. Resolution of different focal lenghts of same lens

    Take any lens that comes in different focal lenght for different formats, eg 4x5, 5x7, 8x10, would they have the same resolution regardless ? I am thinking of "compressing" the number of lenses you...
