    Do you know Bob Monaghan's MF site? He's posted a couple of articles there about hacking inexpensive 400 mm and longer "telephoto" lenses sold for 35 mm cameras. Many of them have cemented doublet achromats at the front that will form an image. And in fact some so-called tele lenses, e.g., the Century 500/5.6 Tele Athenar II I sold a couple of years ago, are simply a cemented achromat at the front of a long tube. Long focus, not telephoto at all.

    Dan,

    I guess 'wideangleman' is going to go through with the auction. He also wants $31 for shipping. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the link to Bob Monaghan's site. I used to use his old site years ago and thought it was dead. Interesting about the Century 500/5.6 Athenar II. That was a pretty expensive lens, as were the other Century lenses.
