    Hi, all -

    Looking for something along the lines of a Fujinon 125 W or Super Angulon 121/8. Not wanting to break the bank, but don't want a POS, either. Anyone have something?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Consider 127mm Rodenstock taken down from old 110 Poleroid. Those are plenty and cheap.

    indeed. I gave up looking for a decent 125mm Fujinon. Instead, I found a 127mm Wollensak Raptar and later, a 127mm Ektar. Both were very reasonably priced and decent performers...although neither leaves much room for camera movements.

    I have a 127 mm Ektar in a black Supermatic shutter, it came off my Speed Graphic. The glass is near perfect, and all speeds sound good on the shutter. Send me a PM, or reply to: Fyrwnrdy at yahoo dot com

    Whatja end up getting? I'm shopping around for something similar (between 125-150mm), but hopefully in a modern shutter.

    I ended up finding a Fujinon 125 W (the 52mm version). Looking forward to trying it out!

    Oh ya, I was eyeing that one meself. Leaning towards a 150mm Symmar-s at the moment. Let me know how it goes, I've always liked Fuji glass.
