    hello

    A beginner asks:

    Regarding the 210 APO Symmar lens and Copal 1, to disassemble the front and rear lenses from the shutter, is there a 'catch' that needs to be released before unscrewing the sections--or, simply turn until they come apart?

    thank you!

    ps: any informed commentary on its use with a 4x5 Speed Graphic--e.g., quality of results, tips on superior shots with this lens, etc., are gratefully received...

    The front and rear cells should easily unscrew without any sort of 'catch'.

    Get a thin rubber Jar Opening aid or two. Grip the shutter firmly and turn the element you wish to remove with the opener aid and turn the element counterclockwise.
