    A very nice dissertation on soft focus lenses

    A very nice and informative dissertation on soft focus lenses. All your favourites are mentioned.
    It's long, so download it and read at your leisure. Some of the included illustrations don't show, but that doesn't hurt that much:

    Thanks, George. It took years off of my life.

    Those missing images are due to copyright issues; its a shame because some a very critical to the arguments being advanced.

    The folks attending our workshop next month will see the unfettered version.

    Hello Russ,

    You must have worked hard on this. I finished my thesis for the degree of PhD at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague last year. Do you still have that compact disk (Wilkinson, Matthew and Colin Galnfield, A Lens Collector’s Vade Mecum; In Memory of Two Lens Collectors and Their Achievements)? Also: how can I get your workshop materials? Thanks.
