    Re: Where to look for information on LF (mainly) lenses

    Many thanks! I fell into the Fujinon rabbit hole Now I can ID lenses for sale. In addition, I found that I like some of the front barrel designs with moderate filter size, but a physical design that somewhat shades and protects the front element. Back to shopping!

    I’ve tried to bundle the lens info on largeformatphotography.info into a searchable and filterable list and joined that together with my representation of the ANI film holder specs here:

    Other resources might follow ;D

    Interesting. Like all such lists, it seems incomplete.

    If you want to improve it, try adding actual maker of rebadged lenses.

    Such a list can never be complete. However a lot of stuff has been added in recent months —> https://lf.animaux.de

    I’m happy to add stuff if you provide a source.

    A very handy list of lists Dan! I sure value your work put into it.
    I own the gear, but those don't make masterpieces. My everyday experience.

    Re: Where to look for information on LF (mainly) lenses

    Hi folks ! Thanks a lot for this thread and for the links given here. On the other hand I still wonder why it is so hard so find technical informations (coverage mainly) about american large format lenses. I own and use a few of them and I think that they deserve to be better known. Dann, is there a place on the Internet dedicated to the american lenses with specs and a bit of history ?
    Large format photography is not only about size.

    Dan,

    I missed this great source when I was moving 2 years ago.

    Good work Dan.

    Very hard for me to read the green watermark, which I think says 'Uploaded June 2019'

    I down loaded it. Acrobat DC is more useful than PS.

    Thank you!

    Laurent, there's no single source. If you write one (bilingual, of course, with a French and an English version), I'm sure that Henry Peyre will be happy to put it on galerie-photo.com.

    Hint: I've written the definitive, until someone does the job better, source on Ilex lenses. A link to it is in the list, as are links to Brian Wallen's site on Kodak lenses and links to Wollensak and B&L catalogs. There are also links to catalogs of other less well-known unitedstatesian lens makers' catalogs. You could start with them.

    Tin Can, the watermark says "Updated June 11 2019." Sorry, I can't choose the color.
