Planning to buy a 150, is this a good lens? experiences? thanks
Schneider lenses are generally regarded highly. I have a 210 old Symmar-S and a 120 Macro Symmar HM and both are just fine. Look into Rodenstock, too, my single Rodenstock is a gem.
well, i need some thoughts on this one...
If it is in good condition it will be an extremely good lens.
What thoughts exactly you are looking for?
In fact the only thing i look on LF lenses is the image circle, i never look at the quality because to me they all are high quality optics no doubt, so i better look at other things like IC[or coverage] and prices.
There are a lot of lenses that have some issues like color casts, more resolution, aberrations, good bokeh. In fact i was looking for a lens that could cover 8x10, this is not the case but could be very usabe although. Also i already have a 150mm APO-Symmar but it has a more limited image circle, and a 155 SA or Grandagon or the 150 Nikkor SW are a bit off my finances right now, but the look of the images are unique.
I own this lens. very good and you should grab it as in time people will figure out that it is a lens with special qualities; for one you can use it without stopping down all the way..very convenient. that said you take the picture the lens only helps....
