What is so special in Amatar comparing to Dagor?
I just like what it does to my pictures - nothing quantifiable, but it's good.

I have a 300 MM I have yet to shoot. I got it for a song because the shutter was dead. I found a 300mm Symmar and shutter, cheaper than a shutter for the dagor. Go figure.

I can buy Goerz Dagor Doppel-Anastigmat serie III F.6,8/125mm lens but I can not find info about its coverage...
Found instead it was used in Press cameras (first picture) http://www.vitalspirit.be/e-vscameramenu4.html
It is 8x10cm plate.
Could it be the lens was made for small format plate cameras?
The Goerz Am Opt (American Optical) Dagor's are the same design, just produced by Carl's sons in the US
There may be slight variations but not by much.

What is for f6.8: 3 3/4 x 4 1/3 ?
And for f16?
I can not see it even made sharpen in PS.
Renes, sorry that US list is a bit vague and not so sharp
150mm covers 5"x4" @ f6.8 5"x7" f16 and 6½"x8½" @ f45
165mm covers 3¾"x5½" @ f6.8, 5"x8"@ f16, and 7"x9" & f45
It's been stated in terms of formats once available rather than true coverage, but the 165mm has just a bit more coverage than the 150, more than enough for a 5x4 or 9x12 camera.
3¾"x5½" actually needs a larger image circle than 5"x4".
Could you write also for Dagor 125mm lens?
This one I will have in a few days, hope its a good Dagor lens.
The 125mm Dagor is:
3¾"x4¼" @ f6.8, 4½"x5½" @ f16 and 5"x7" @ f45 so only covrs 9x12 or 5"x4" stopped down.
Thank you Ian.
