    Re: Lenses for Horseman 45FA

    Fujinon made a very nice, small, light 135mm NW f5.6 (IC=206mm) -- 6/6 design -- as well as other 135mm and 150mm lenses:

    Thanks. That's very helpful. There are a list of several sellers/repair shops.

    I find it interesting that the website makes no mention of the various KIEV 16mm cameras. Maybe I missed it.

    65mm was as wide as Fuji went, but the OP has a SWD 65mm in a #00 shutter -- and Fuji literature to boot.

    I've never seen or heard of this either.

    Can we be the only ones?

  26. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    I do have one lens where I needed a little more space on the front, but I did not want to use a step-up ring. I simply found a cheap filter of the same diameter that had the glass held in place with...
  27. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    The CM-W "hoods" assure that. The widest CM-W, at 105mm, has a 67mm hood that's as long at the lens itself.
  28. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    That's how I have unintentionally avoided the entire problem -- all of my wide-angle lenses have step-up rings for the, nearly always present, HMC UV filter.
  29. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    I've done a lot of "landscapes" in Arizona, from Organ Pipe to the Grand Canyon. My 8 ounce 125mm f5.6 has come in handy, of course, but I never needed more than 200mm of image circle on my 4x5.

    The Schneider 110mm f5.6 Super Symmar XL wins in this size match-up, but both the Fujinon NW and CM-W 125mm f5.6 (neither are included above) are half the weight -- if weight is an issue.
