    David,

    Thanks for the welcome. It's great to be here. I wish I could have become a sponsor sooner, but I'm launching a new business from the ground up and each step always seems to take a little longer than anticipated. But, I'm up and running now, have some Feisol products in stock and ready to ship and more on the way.

    This is just one product line I'll be carrying. I will constantly be adding new products to serve the dedicated film user.

    Sanjay,

    Thanks for your encouragement. I haven't really been away, just not as active lately.

    I know you are one of the authoritative voices in Fuji lenses, will you become a dealer or concentrate of rare lenses like the Docter Optics Germinar Lenses?

    Good luck with this venture.

    Bruce,

    I will be adding new products whenever I can. I still have a few of the long (600mm and 750mm ) APO Germinars and will be offering some new-old-stock G Clarons of various focal lengths in a couple weeks. I don't plan to become a used equipment dealer, but I may eventually sell of some surplus lenses from my own collection through the business. I have more than I could ever use and would like to get them in the hands of people who can put them to good use.

    Eventually, I'd like to add new lenses from one, or more, of the remaining manufacturers, but I don't want to move too fast. My goal is to build the business up gradually over time. I want to choose what I sell carefully and give every product line the attention and support it deserves. I've seen too many examples of others over committing and under delivering and that's caused problems in the past. I don't want to ever find myself in that situation. I plan to be in this for the long haul and prefer slow steady growth over growing fast and getting in over my head. I'll post updates here in my dedicated forum (a great feature for APUG sponsors that I plan to take full advantage of) whenever I have anything new to offer.

    Hi Kerry,

    I'm interested in the CT-3371 (without a centre column) for my 4x5. I live where it rains a lot - does water enter the leg segments when in the rain for days at a time, or when working in streams? Also, when adjusting the screw for allowing air to escape the leg segments for quicker set up, is this a place where water can enter the legs? Thanks for your time on this, and good luck with your dream :smile:
