    Re: Help to ID this lens.

    OP's follow up: per the measurement specs in my 1982 Fuji catalogue:
    The larger rear cell's dimensions match the rear cell of a 90mm f/8 EBC FUJINON NSWS.
    Smaller rear cell's dimensions do not...

    Re: Help to ID this lens.

    Agree... I shot an 8x10 negative earlier today with the lens wide open. Was very difficult to even determine focus. On a Bokeh scale of 1 to 10, I would rate the mongrel lens as a 0.0. Will be...

    Rough measurements (didn't have a ruler with me at the time) put the max aperture between f/11-f/16. With no lens brand on the front elements, again makes me think "two rear elements from two wide...
