    My largest lens is a 610mm Repro Claron mounted in an Ilex #5 shutter. It stands 5" high, and the shutter is 5" in diameter. It weighs 3.14 lbs, which by comparison to some lenses, isn't that heavy. While I wouldn't call it compact, it has a filter size of only 82mm. Another advantage size-wise is that this lens weighs about as much on the front as the rear. So, it's balanced.

    My Sinar Norma front standard can hold this lens just fine. Not so sure about a Sinar F, though?

    Here is my most current "whopper". The Bausch and Lomb 132.9mm F2 Super Cinephor. This lens was made to project theatrical 35mm and 70mm movies in commercial movie houses. I am in the process of mounting it to my Makiflex Standard by Plaubel. Weighs a TON!

    Too big for my Tachihara 4x5 but fits the 8x10 .... just.

    That's a great shot... but without a weight I can't add it to the spreadsheet...

    I had to google that, what an impressive piece of glass.

    That is just bonkers.

    Blimey, I had no idea of the size until I googled the camera... that is one big camera. If you get a chance could you weigh the lens?

    Puts my barrel 300mm Imagon to shame... There's not a lot of glass in them but I guess that shutter will add a bit.

    I also have the 420 Imagon, it came only in barrel. I use mine with my Sinar Norma shutters. Someone has screwed it to the front of that Zettor. That's quite interesting, I've never seen one of those before. Does it have actual speeds, or open and close, and time? It certainly is a whopper of a shutter.

    The 132.9 F2 B&L Super Cinephor weighs 520 grams.

    Two 150mm lenses for size comparison, the 150mm Xenar, and the 150mm Symmar.

    R. Knoll f5.5/360 Doppel-Rigonar. Not nearly as big as some but my largest lens. I recently finished machining the mounting flange and have it mounted to a 6x6 board.R. Knoll Leipzig 5.5-360 Doppel-Rigonar by JOHN EARLEY, on Flickr

    The Zettor shutter has been rebuilt by Zacks Camera Repair and works very smoothly. It has 4 settings:O = Open, Z = like the classic B mode, M = "instant" = about 1/8 second depending on how the cable release plunger is pushed, C = closed. The Zettor has huge blades and needs a strong long-throw cable release with at least 25mm of travel. The first 24mm tensions a big driving spring and the release happens in the last 1mm.
