    Is this soft enough for you?

    The other thing to try is getting some old 19th century WA with a Waterhouse stop, and focusing with the open aperture, but inserting a pinhole in one of the openings...

    Pinhole + lens has a very different look than either used alone...

    And you won't need a shutter...

    I'm also not sure how rectilinear and anastigmat the meniscus type lenses will be for architecture. There....three esoteric lens words in one sentence!

    That isn't the soft-sharp I'm looking for.

    I got a 120mm "Wollason Meniscus lens" from Reinhold Schable in Washington. I'll send photos soon. It's a very simple clean setup. I need to mount on a Cambo board and experiment.
