  2. Re: Alternatives to PS - what they can and can not do?

    We use the new 64 bit Corel Paint Shop Pro X6. Fantastic program. I also use Lightroom. Between the two, they do everything I need, but as the old saying goes, your mileage can and will vary.

    Re: Infrared Focusing

    Stop down as much as you can. Also, I find that focusing with IR is more critical if you are using longer focal length lenses (210mm or longer for 4x5, for example) and if you have any of it around,...

    Re: Curious, why choose 135mm over 150mm?

    Mostly I would agree with you, but I did compare a good 150mm next to my 135mm. I really love those F9 g-clarons. I have them in 270, 240, 210 and 150mm. The ground glass is darker to focus on...

    Re: Curious, why choose 135mm over 150mm?
