    Hi !
    Quite everything lies in the title of the thread.
    I would be delighted to know type of construction, coverage, and the like.
    Thanks a lot in advance for your help !

    Good to see you here, Georges! I have one K 75/6.3, it is extremely sharp, coverage might be a little short, I should compare it with my Super-Angulon 75/5.6. Never did!...

    I have the 90mm version. I found that my 90mm at the very edge of the image circle, it can be a tiny bit soft, but the image circle, when the lens is stopped down, is huge on my 90mm, almost large enough to cover 8x10 straight on. So for 4x5, it's a great lens.

    A late reply; apologies: Komuras in general are usu. very good. (My 210/6.3 is one of my favourite lenses) I think some of the wide ones don't have a front filter thread though, is that right?

    Hi !
    I agree about the 210 Commercial. I still have to test the 75. But my sample has a front filter thread AND a rear filter thread.I did not measure them so can't tell the sizes right now, but there are.
