    Do either or both of these lenses have a circle greater than 600 mm?

    Comparisons appreciated if you have used these and the Fugi compact 600.

    Fugi has advertised circle of 600 mm

    Thank you all again.

    Thanks Robert,

    I would assume it would cover 14 x 17 if it covers 12 x 20?

    The fugi is available at 1500.00 new in copal shutter and published circle is 600 which is in the ball park. So far I have 355 G Claron, and felt 24' would be a good next lens, was hoping 24 artar might be a little more agreeable to the pocket book....what shutter does it take?

    The image circle of the Fuji is huge - I pretty certain that most 20x24 owners have one and it covers fine, which would imply a usuable image circle in excess of 800mm. I have used both a 24inch RD Artar and a Fuji Compact - I prefer the Fuji...
