    Re: 300mm lens on Linhof Master Technika

    Sounds like you are already looking at the proper field-type 300mm lenses, not the huge f/5.6 Plasmats. And as already reported, they work just fine on the MT. I have used the Nikkor-M 300mm on mine...

    Re: How sharp can I expect from 4X5

    Plenty will say these are fightin' words. "Resolution" of film isn't as hyped as many would like you to believe, once an entire imaging chain is considered.

    Thanks! I've taken a lot of photos in this area - it's always different, with the river varying in height depending on rain, leaves and algae making things interesting, etc.

    Yep not the hardware. I have basically the same system with an older CPU. No problems on Lightroom/Photoshop, and even do multi-camera video editing which is way more hardware-intensive.
