    A friend gave me a Goodkin Graphinar 8.25 f8 lens this week. He said he thinks this may be a lens from a copy machine or repro camera.

    Can anyone share any information about it? What the coverage may be?

    It's roughly 3 inches in diameter and fairly heavy.

    Thanks,

    Yes, its a repro lens. Don't know anything about the f8, but I had, once upon a time, a 12" f6.8 which was a Dagor 6/2 design. Quite sharp and huge coverage.

    That's the 300 mm I think from browsing on the web. Did you mount it in a shutter?

    No, I only actually used the lens a few times. I picked it up at a garage sale with a
    few other repro lenses. I gave it to a friend who had just bought an 8x10. I have no idea if she still has the lens.
