    Precisely. In order for one to offer viewers of photographs all scene elements that could have been scanned and examined in detail by a human present when they were made, they must be sharp...

    Re: My Dream lens.

    I anticipated a "strong" reaction to post #81, and you other members did not disappoint. :)

    Re: My Dream lens.

    No, it's not.

    Use of soft focus lenses is a perfectly valid way to photograph. They enable creation of images that reflect what the photographer wants to present, and viewers will either like the...

    Re: LED Enlarger Head?

    No, it was my backyard "standard scene" from around 50 feet. The Sironar N / Apo Sironar N series was optimized for 1:20. I assume 120mm versions followed suit. However, I've seen no technical...

  20. Re: Deciding between Rodenstock vs. Fujinon entry level 150mm lenses

    Based on those posts, it's clear you are referring to the older, single-coated, inside-lettering 150mm Fujinon W with 46mm filter threads. It's the only one that had a 245mm image circle.

    New (current) version. Only TMY-2 has been coated since, if memory serves, 2007. B&H probably never updated its Web page illustration.
  34. Re: B&H has 8x10 TMax 400 in stock right now

    At this moment, B&H has 45 boxes of 8x10 TMY-2 in stock. It has just lowered the price to $69.95 per box.
