    Fujinon 65/5.6 SWD Lens - Any Good ?

    I have the opportunity to buy a Fujinon 65/5.6 SWD Lens and as I have no experience of Fuji lenses was wondering how the Fuji would compare to the Rodenstock and Schneider comparable lenses ?

    The colour/bloom of the lens is of no importance as I only work in B&W

    Thanks

    Martin

    I have the 90mm SWD, and it's an excellent lens, every bit the equal of contemporary lenses from the other major manufacturers.

    The SWD lenses are quite rare.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    Stratford-upon-Avon, isn't that where William Shakespeare was born? I'm sorry, but I love Shakespeare.

    To answer your question, Fujinon is every bit as good as Schneider, Rodenstock, and Nikkor.

    Yes

    If you ever came to Stratford, you could hardly fail to notice that Shakespeare was born here, there is the lots of Shakespeare stuff here - his house, his fathers house, his wifes house, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare (theatre) Company,,,,,,,,,,

    Thanks for the Lens info
