    Well, I can't read someone else's mind, Oren. Until someone has been on the road awhile and knows what they like or not, I suspect there's a lot of "what if the grass is greener on the other side of the fence?" mentality going on. I happily worked for over a decade owning only a single LF lens before branching out, so was opposite in that respect.

    Me neither. So let's give him a chance to tell us.

    Sometimes that means spelling out in advance what they might not themselves be aware of until a range of options is spelled out; but then it's inevitable that everyone lists their own favorite this and that. Count me guilty too.

    Hello,

    Ok many thanks for your all the information that you gave me regarding this lens...

    So I decided to keep my APO Symmar and not taking this lens as it won't be usable for the kind of portrait that I want to take for my project...

    I already took some nice ""Head an Shoulderd" portrait with my 300 but was thinking that with an longer lens it would have been more easy as my below was almost extented at their maximum with the 300 but in fact this was the reverse (thanks to Peter for the explanation) for H&S Portrait I would need a below extension of 800mm which I don't have with my camera (max is 450mm) So for such works I would use a 240mm....But can we make Portrait on an 8x10 with a 240mm...I have some doubt on the final result...

    Technically you can, but you will be getting into funky sized ears and noses if you are going for a tight portrait. You could try to get a tophat lensboard for your 300. That could give you some extra length.

    Yuriy, despite flooded areas, I like your nature portraits.
