    Re: 240mm Componon-S on 8x10 enlarger

    Drew's comments about light falloff are very true. Realize, when looking at these graphs, they are normalized to 100% on the X-axis. The U-max (1/2 film diagonal) is set differently for each lens. To...

    Re: 240mm Componon-S on 8x10 enlarger

    No question in my darkroom my Componon 240mm is not as sharp at the corners on a 16x20 projection when examined with my Peak 1 magnifier, compared to my 300mm lens. The 240 appears 'just ok' but the...

    Re: Best 4x5 camera to accommodate a 65mm lens?

    I scanned the thread because, as a Horseman FA user, I don't think it is the best. In fact it is pretty difficult to use a 65mm. It is doable, and there is a focus scale for 65mm lens on the camera,...
  13. Re: Horseman 45FA wide and zoom. Suggestions please

    The 90mm Topcor is the same as the 90mm Caltar, except the rear barrel of the Caltar won't allow the lens fit through the opening in the front of the FA.

  14. Re: Horseman 45FA wide and zoom. Suggestions please

    I have the 210mm Topcor and the 180mm Topcor and the 300mm converter for the 150. All are just as nice as any German lens I have ever used.

    This is an example taken with the Topcor 210mm.

  15. Re: Horseman 45FA wide and zoom. Suggestions please

    The widest Topcor they made for the FA was the 90mm. That is a very nice lens, perhaps my favorite for the camera. My 150mm Topcor would be second in line.
  16. Re: 8x10 Photography Compared to 4x5 Photography?

    Only you can answer the question. After years of 4x5 photography, I know the answer when I printed my first 8x10 negative.

    Re: Fujinon W 125mm lens cap

    The nominal inner diameter of the lenscap would be the outer diameter of the lens barrel. Every one of my Fujinon caps has this number molded in the plastic.
    My 125mm Fujinon has 85 and 80 caps.

    I think most 150mm lenses will fit the 8cmx8cm lensboards. The Horseman/Topcor 150mm lens is very nice if you can find one. Otherwise, any of the other major manufacturers lenses should be fine.
