    Re: Aperture indicator not aligned

    You could call it a feature that automatically adjusts the exposure by stopping down a bit to compensate for the shutter actually being slower than marked;-)

    It is my belief that the f/6.3 Tessars are considered to have higher image quality than their f/4.5 cousins.

    Re: Finding f-stops for remounted lens

    Pere, what kind of lux readings do you get through the lens off a normally lit wall? 2 digits, 3 digits, 4 digits? How much change in lux is 1 stop?

    Re: Finding f-stops for remounted lens

    Re: Budget wide angle lens for 8x10

    For really wide, if you don't need movements, the old 121 Super Angulon does a good job. I believe it has just a tad more coverage than the 120.

    My 165 didn't make the corners focused in the foreground and stopped down. Corran was your 159 an f/9.5 or an f12.5? Mine is a late coated one.

    I tested a 165mm Angulon against my 159mm f/12.5 Wolly and as a result the 165 ended up in the whole plate kit and the 159 stayed with the 8x10. The 210 G-Claron works fine but my most used lens on...
