People, corporations, governments, you name it. They honor agreements when its too costly to deal with breaking them, by and large.

    Personally, I find dwelling on conflicts to be detrimental to my shooting inclinations. And furthermore, equipment that's acquired through difficult transactions seems to carry a karma that affects later images, and conversely, lenses that came through pleasant encounters seem to carry a more positive ability to produce good images. Lenses, from Galli, for example, seem to have a natural momentum towards positive imagery, at least from my own experience.
    Thanks John! What a nice thing to say.

    "Let the user Judge".
    Isn't this an old Wollensak trademark?

    Abouy 1913, Wollensak started to use this phrase...

    Photographic Times Jan 1913

    "Page nine, of the Wollensak Optical Company's new catalogue contains a guarantee which should be of interest to all purchasers of photographic goods. It is as follows:

    "LET THE USER JUDGE"

    That we guarantee our product is a matter of course—all reputable firms do so, but we go a step farther, and take the attitude that we don't care to make a sale unless it is to a thoroughly satisfied customer, and we don't consider it good business policy to force our goods on anyone. The merits of our products are presented in a truthful, concise manner, no claims being made for them that will not bear out our statements in every respect.

    We aim to furnish the prospective customer with all necessary information regarding our product, and will be pleased to arrange a trial period of from ten to thirty days with a customer's dealer, for any of our products they may be interested in, so that they may be tried out intelligently for the work desired and in comparison with competitive articles. We are then content to "Let the User Judge" and purchase whatever suits him best."



    Thats one cool little lens...must research....

    Yep, I went in the day before at $211, and hoped no one else would see it. I've never heard of this one before, and couldn't find anything on it.
