Thread: Recommend ULF lens with some 800mm image circle

  1. #1

    Recommend ULF lens with some 800mm image circle

    Needed for some about 1:1 repro work. Thought about using Apo Germinar W lens(es).
    Space is rather limited, so wide angle lenses preferred.

    Any other recommendations?

    210/11 and 270/11 G-Claron-WA both cover 800 mm at 1:1. Brochure here: http://web.archive.org/web/201009220...hiv/archiv.htm

    So will the 260/10 Process Nikkor, also sold as 260/10 Nikkor-Q.

    Good luck finding any of them quickly.

    Otherwise, in the process lens line 480/9 Apo-Nikkor and 480/9 Apo-Ronar are your best bets.

    There's been a G Claron 270mm f/11 on the auction site for the past six months just sitting there waiting for a buyer..

    I need shorter working distance, so I prefer WA lenses.
