    You have a very nice website - with jump from lens to examples.

    I note you have a proto Euryscope in your collection which is already in our list of these!


    A reasonably priced landscape meniscus would, perhaps, be a useful addition to your battery!

    What a cool website!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Thanks for the compliments. I do need another good landscape lens. Any recommendations based on the ones in this thread?

    Looks like Imagons are finally starting to come back into their own; grab one before they go up. They even come in shutters up to 360mm. And remember that every Petzval has a landscape lens up front!

    I can confirm that, one of my most used portrait lenses on 8x10 as it fits easily on my Sinar P and Sinar Copal shutter.

    Cheers,

    I've got a 250mm and a 120mm Imagon which I love. I had forgotten about flipping Petzvals. Good idea, and I need to try that with my Darlot Cascet next batch I take. I think my Speed Graphic will have just enough bellows range for at infinity, but nothing closer.

    Cheers,
    Interesting discussion in that I have my Eidoscope #2 listed for sale on here. I love the lens but I have to let it go. It does have a wonderful personality. One of my favorites. I know it covers 8x10 at infinity as well.

    They're not the most "exotic" of the lenses here, but I love portraits with the Kodak Ektars. They say "1940s" to me.
    They're sharp, modern lenses, but they seem less harsh than current ones. My only guess is that it's because of the perfectly round aperture, but I'm guessing there.
