    Kerry Thalmann I believe has contacts in the company from his View Camera article on the older lenses. Maybe he'll chime in or you can PM him.

    I have a 240mm and I like it but wouldn't a 355mm or even a 305mm be more interesting?

    That 270mm would be very nice indeed, but it wasn't that long ago that Robert White and Badger Graphic were practically giving them away at close-out prices(one nice thing about living in the past is that it was nearly always cheaper if it dosen't involve digital) I think Jim Galli can make you a way better deal on a 240mm.

    IMHO G-Clarons are brilliant lenses. If there weren't so many good used examples out there, a new one would be a most worthy object of GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome).
