    I presume that's the new car dealership in Tonopah, Jim, and not the used car lot? Lovely lens rendering. Or is that the truck left over from your moonshine running days?

    Very nice photo, Jim.
    What is your aperture in the first four photos?
    Did you use the hood or compendium? Probably, such SF lenses lose tonal contrast (tonal resolution) from parasitic light. But on your photos everything is super.

    Thanks for the kind words. The first four photos are wide open which is f4.5 for this lens. No hood or compendium.

    Extraordinary photos, Jim. They have presence like no other. If you were to shoot these same images with a Verito, would they look quite similar? How would they differ?

    Thanks Paul. Yes, very similar at about a quarter or less of the cost. They are different formula's of glass to arrive at a similar effect. Perhaps I'll do a few side by side pics to compare. The Verito's remain relatively inexpensive because they probably made 100 Veritos for every one Pinkham.

    I thought this would be a worthy exercise and so last evening as the light waned, I made identical (tripod location) images with this Pinkham & Smith Series IV #2 f=12" lens and with a Wollensak Verito f=11 1/2" lens. All are shot wide open. There was more difference than I was expecting. The Pinkham clearly wins in resolution, even at full aperture.


    verito picture no. 1



    pinkham & smith picture no. 1


    verito picture no. 2



    pinkham & smith picture no. 2

    I'll let you folks form your own opines That half inch made a large difference in the field of view. Both were focused at the same plane with same movements.
