    Quick stats:

    Fujinon A 1200mm f/24, 6 lenses in 4 groups, 50 degree coverage for 1120mm image circle, in Copal #3, 102mm front filter size and single coated.

    I currently own three samples of the A 600mm f/11 lens but this is the first time I've seen the 1200mm! The only one left on my watch list now is the 300 SW.

    Is this an imaginary entity or was one actually PRODUCED?!? I've seen it listed in Fuji catalogues and seen it discussed but I've NEVER heard of anyone actually seeing one, let alone fondling one...

    Technically it is copal 3s,I have seen one at MPEX, it was later sold to some buyer in Asia.

    Are you sure that 300SW is the last one on your watch list? How about 200mm Hypergon...

    Post from the next buyer: "Can I use this lens on my 4x5 Tachihara?"

    Um, Mark, the longest focal length that can be made to work on 2x3 Graphics -- two, set up front to back -- is around 19". Without doing the arithmetic, I think 48" would be a bit long for a pair of 5x7 Speeds.

    But since the thing is in shutter, setting up any of the Cambos that uses a 1"x1" rail to work with it should be fairly easy. Don't know about other monorail cameras, suggest Cambos only because I know where to get inexpensive 1"x1" rail that Cambo standards will go on.

    Yes, I knew you were joking. A serious answer is sometimes the best response to a joke.

    If I pop 2-12" extensions onto my 36" sinar rail I could use that sucker.....

    Toyo cameras have a back extension, so if those were just ganged together to an appropriate length... (sort of defeats the purpose of a lightweight field camera, though)

    Oh, hey, look! Dry plates! Right next to the lens!
