    Good work, Jon. I like the restraint with the color versions.

    Re: 180mm for Portraiture

    Yes, you have to get the diffusion right for a given print enlargement, and it likely means stopping down a bit more for bigger enlargements....

    And you don't have to follow "The Rules". Hurrell...

    Thanks, Les! I'd driven by the entrance to this place a number of times. I had no idea how immense it was, and how much was back there. There are miles of narrow roads on the property.

    Re: 180mm for Portraiture

    Aiden,

    That's great! If it were me, I'd spend a good amount of time using the Prinz. I'm planning on using a longer lens in the same series for portraits with an 8x10. Have fun!

    Re: 180mm for Portraiture

    They are hard to focus, and, yes, I've read and tried all of the suggestions here over the years. The lens is also less versatile than, say, a Xenar. LF is hard enough for a beginner....

    Re: 180mm for Portraiture

    That's one of the few lenses that I really dislike, and my Ebay moniker is 'fujinon'. It's not sharp, and it's not really soft.

    Re: 180mm for Portraiture

    Note that 180mm and 210mm lenses are very similar, but 210s are much more common, and thus maybe cheaper.

    Re: 180mm for Portraiture

    Look for a lens in the right board. Given your camera, you should be able to do that. If not, you'll have to buy a board with the right-sized hole, or have a blank board drilled.

    Re: 180mm for Portraiture

    Don't stress over this. Take a look and find what seems like the best fit. There are no guarantees with anything that you buy that it will be The One. Get one in a good shutter with the flash sync...

    I've had Richard do it a couple of times over the years, and he would be my first choice, but I expect that anyone capable of calibrating a Pentax Digital Meter should be able to do it.

    Speaking as someone who's done a lot of work on digital camera scanning.....the stability and alignment needs for scanning are much higher than for traditional copy stand work.

    Looking good, Jon! That was my main wide angle lens from about 1994-2021. I had to retire mine as it stopped focusing. Otherwise, I'd still be using it.
