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

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

    That's exactly the opposite of my experience. In reality, the shorter the focal length of a CM Fujinon W lens, the greater its advantage (less problem with vignetting from filters) over other...

    Both my 135mm and 450mm CM Fujinon W lenses maintain uniform, extremely high sharpness and contrast all the way to the edges of their specified image circles. We won't discuss how Fuji achieved...
