    Re: 65mm lens comparison

    Just received my Nikkor 65mm f4 today!!! Wonderful condition. Works well the Pacemaker . Can't wait to shoot it and see what happens. I will be getting rid of my Super-Angulon 65mm f8 to help pay...

    Re: 65mm lens comparison

    Even though I started all this conversation, I actually prefer longer lenses! My favorite lens on my 4x5 is a 180mm. I many times go to my 360mm. I also find that I shoot in vertical format most....

    Re: 65mm lens comparison

    Ok . This is the one and only image I have shot with my Fuji 75mm SWD f5.6. This is a straight scan from my Epson 4990 except for a little contrast adjustment. The foreground is in shadow and...

    Re: 65mm lens comparison

    Thanks! This what I needed to know! I think I will hold off on investing in a 65mm just now. I was hoping to hear that the fall off would be more acceptable with the F4 or 5.6 lenses. I cannot...

    Re: 65mm lens comparison

    What about actual optical performance? I am mostly curious about exposure fall off and coverage. I will be using primarily on a Pacemaker Graphic so movements are very limited. If necessary, I...

    65mm lens comparison

    OK! I am going to bite the bullet and buy a 65mm lens for 4x5 that is better than the SK 65mm f8 that I have now. Any comparisons between the Fuji 65mm SWD f 5.6 and the Nikon 65mm f4? I have...

  12. Re: 65mm Super- Angulon f/8 vignette solutions on 4x5

    Thanks ! This is a big help. Knowing the falloff is the same for all 65mm lenses, I will not invest in a 5.6 version hoping for less issues. I seldom use my 65mm and use it on a Pacemaker Graphic...
  13. Re: Are the higher shutter speeds on large format lenses always off?

    I believe the faster speeds are optimistic as Mr. Crisp said. My Supermatics all run a stop slow at the fastest setting, even though the slower ones are dead on. I just received a Linhof...

    Yes, a 90mm would be your next lens. I do not like 210mm lenses. For me, I am either too close or too far away. For a long lens, I recommend the Nikon 300mm f9. My favorite lens is the Rodenstock...
