    Does anyone have a PDF of the calibration procedure for the Fotoman rangefinder, or better still, know of a link?

    Re: Wide Angle for 12x16"

    Well, you might luck out and find a 240mm Computar, but they tend to command rather high prices. Some 240mm Graphic-Kowas cover as much as the Computar. Some, do not.

    The 8" f6.5 Cooke Series...

    But, there is a domino effect. A lighter camera can mean a lighter tripod and tripod head. A more compact camera, can mean a smaller, lighter pack to carry it in, etc. It all adds up.

  13. Re: 210mm f/9 Graphic Kowa - Image Circle

    Mine was a 6/6 construction with a usable image circle in the 380mm range. It was definitely not the same as my 210mm f9 Computar that was a 6/4 plasmat that covered about 425mm.

    It's a great ultrawide for 8x10, but seems like overkill for a 5x7. Especially when the OP said the 150mm Super-Symmar HM and APO-Sironar W are beyond his budget. It's unlikely he'll find a 150mm...

    Lots of options and lots of good recommendations. Loved the 150mm APO-Sironar-W on 5x7, but my all time favorite wide angle for 5x7 (and 4x10) is the 150mm f9 Graphic-Kowa. While the designs and...
