    Komura 75mm f6.3

    Ok, every now and then someone has to ask a question about an off-beat lens. Do es anyone have any guesses as to the performance of Komura SW lenses. Especiall y image circle? I have a 210 Komura Commercial (tessar design) which performs v ery well for B+W, so I'm wondering if the Super Wides are worth purchasing as we ll.

    Thanks in advance.

    Komura 75mm f6.3

    The 75mm SW Komura isn't very good, if my sample is typical. It'll cover 5x4, with a bit of movement, but the corner definition is very poor once the lens is moved off-centre. The corners suffer from bad lateral colour, so a yellow filter helps a lot with B&W.The only good thing I can say about it, is that within its limited image circle there's only slight falloff, and a centre filter isn't needed. If I could afford the SW Nikkor, Grandagon or SA, then I'd replace it without looking back. Still, it only cost me #75, thirty years ago, so I can't really complain too bitterly.
