    Thank you, I'm a sucker for that kind of graphic abstraction found in the everyday.

    Re: Hole Saw For Commercial Ektar Lens

    That may be but it's not rocket science. It's a hole in a panel of wood or aluminum.

    The 2" will do fine. 0.02" won't make any difference once the flange is screwed to the board.

    Re: Finding f-stops for remounted lens

    Difference between stops is a doubling or halving of light allowed through. If f4 lets 850 lux to your groundglass, then f2.8 allows 1700 lux and f5.6 lets 425 lux through and so on.

    Again, are you seriously suggesting somebody cut x-ray film to be able to load a 35mm camera with a single exposure? Thatís firmly in the category of ďyou could but why?Ē

    If the negative looks sharp with a 3x loupe, itís sharp enough for at least a 3x enlargement. Iíd put your energy into troubleshooting your scanning setup. It sounds like your scans are soft.
