    Komura w.a. lenses

    I have had this lens for about a year and I am happy with it. I have used it mostly with B&W and B&W infrared film. Your results may be less satisfying if you plan on shooting a lot of chrome. Here is what I have found.

    Light fall-off is very noticeable when viewed wide open on the ground glass, but rarely noticed on the negatives (usually shot at f22). I haven't felt as though I needed a center filter. Negative contrast and sharpness at the edges seem fine. Lens flare has not been a problem. The lens is quite big, so it does not fit in the pack as easily as others might, but who cares.

    I bought this lens in mint condition for $325 and I have no plans to replace it with a more modern (i.e more expensive) lens. I hope this helps.
