    It is as good (or bad) as the 90/6.8 Angulon.

    OP, you recently mentioned that you have a 90/5.6 Fujinon SWD. Why don't you use it? Why pursue a worse lens?

    You can quibble over the performance in the far corners but there is an image there, not black corners. This is a fact. At f/32 I find the lens acceptable (though I have read reports of varying performance - I have used 2 Angulons and a Graflex Optar and they all performed roughly the same in my usage).

    Good question, Dan. I still haven't decided if I want to mess with the Fujinon in the field since I would have to remove the rear lens element, mount the front element and shutter, remove the back, and attach the rear element. So I am just thinking about a more compact alternative for use in the field. An Angulon or an Optar would cost around $100 so not a huge investment. Then I would have to decide whether to keep the Fujinon. In short, it all comes down to the ease (or lack thereof) of mounting the lens on the camera.

    Ed, you're being silly. Mounting a lens whose rear cell won't pass through the lens throat is not that big a deal. I have to do it with, among others, my 35/4.5 Apo Grandagon. One learns to do it, and the lens feels no pain.

    Whether or not it gives you excellent performance in the far corners...well no not in my experience with a couple copies and similar lenses of the Angulon design.

    It's small and lightweight though and great for backpacking. If you need higher performance get something else.

    As per your query it'll work on your Graphic with either shutter.
    Agree about the coverage. In addition, mine is a convertible with the rear element focusing at almost twice the focal length of he complete lens.

    No doubt there is an element of silliness involved. I was out today doing a bit of shooting using my Rodenstock 150/5.6 Sironar S. In between photos I was trying to visualize how I would mount the Fujinon 90/5.6 while out in the field. I'm not necessarily the most graceful person but I think I will be able to figure it out.

    Just be very careful, those threads were not designed for this and can be damaged or cross threaded. You also must ensure that the rear group is stewed all the way in each time.
