    Re: Noob question on Caltar 90mm f8

    Thanks for all this information. Down the road I think I would like one of those non modern designs.

    My initial concern was that maybe some of the aperture blades where non working. A problem I had a while back with an old summarit. Now that I know my lens is in good shape, I am excited to to give it a go. Hoping I can see with the f8, but from reading maybe it is not too big a deal.

I don't know, and neither do I know if it was requested by Nikon or just done by Copal.

    I have a 90mm f/8 with 7-blade and 120mm f/8 with 5-blade.
    I just realized that I had watched your video on the intrepid black. Thank you. That's what I ended up with.
