  1. Re: JML or NUARC 6.5" f8 process camera lens

    If I remember correctly I used it for this photo.

    No, but I use my JML 8 1/4 f8 lens on my 8x10 regularly.

  12. Re: My LF-prints less crisp compared to my MF

    Just a couple things to consider.
    It's tough to beat the quality of your Pentax lenses plus there is a good chance you where using a faster shutter speed. So therefore less motion blur.
