  2. Re: Why Fujinon lenses are cheap compare to others?

    Just to clarify my earlier post... The variation between the "big four" is slight for sure. My comment about my 150mm Schneider being subtly the best late modern lens I have owned could just as...

    To the original poster, KEH -- in my experience -- is a much, much more reliable way to get good equipment than here, in my experience. You might pay a little more, but you know what you are getting...

    My old 210 W I sold here had the same issue as my current 135mm NW.

  8. Re: Would you print 30x42" color from 5x7 scanned by v700?

    A lot of it depends on your subject matter. I wanted extra sharp detail and contrast on lights and support cables on bridges and details on buildings that were miles in the distance. If you are...
  9. Re: Would you print 30x42" color from 5x7 scanned by v700?

    The largest print size that met my standards from an 8x10 neg scanned on an Epson V750 was 24x30. So my answer would be no. Get a drum scan or print smaller if you want a digital print.

    Are you ever going to have a hybrid workflow where you scan? Are you only going to shoot b&w? Are you going to develop b&w at home? If so do you have a darkroom or a space big enough to do 11x14?

    Yes, this is what I really want to know... If the lens was 5 feet from the subject (using 600mm and 11x14) what framing would this be of the subject? Same question for 7 and 10 feet away.
