  1. Re: "Camera Work" A Photographic Quarterly. Online

    A few years ago Taschen put out "Camera Work: The Complete Photographs 1903-1917" in a rather nice book that I picked up for a pretty reasonable price. They don't list it on their website now, so...

    In 2007, I was looking to get a 300mm lens for 4x5, and at the time, the Fujinon-C was cheaper than the Nikkor-M (not a lot). In addition, the Fujinon-C requires a slightly shorter flange focal...

  18. Re: Recommendations for a general purpose lens for a Calumet 4x5?

    Since you like a longer lens on 120, another popular option for a first lens is a 210mm f/5.6. You should be able to find a good one for under $200. Fujinon lenses, of which I have several, are often...
