    The secret's out now. You're not going to find them under $100 anymore

    I've got a 21 1/4" Eastman Anastigmat that seems to be identical to the 21 1/4" Ektanon. Just looking at the GG, the (presumably older) Anastigmat appears sharper that the Ektanon.

    Charley, I have the anistigmat also. I thought it was the Ektanon but I just pulled it out to check. Smooth iris and F-11 to F-128. Yes, no more under 100. I think I paid $65.00 for mine.

    I must say that I have a 17'' kodak ektanon f/10 which cover nicely my 12x20 camera and give razor sharp pictures. I didn't pay a lot for it. It was a barrel lens, I use it with a sinar shutter with great pleasure.

    I've got a spare 21 1/4" Kodak Anastigmat, in fact. I was waiting until fall to repair an iris blade that lost a pin. the other one I have is wonderful on 16x20.

    I just bought the 210 Xl. It will cover 16x20 easily w/o center filter. Illumination is good.

    Gary.....Adam at SK Grimes called and the 8 week turnaround took less than 3 weeks. The 300 Fuji was mounted in a new Copal 3 and is on the UPS truck as I write. Will get it Tuesday or Wed. and try her out for coverage. If it covers, this should be a nice WIIIDDDEEE one for the 12x20. Keep you posted as I have 8 more of these lenses in barrel................TW

    A barrel lens would be nice! Please let us know about the coverage. Thanks.

    Well,

    The camera finally arrived and I had a chance to try some of the lenses I that own and have borrowed from several friends. As suspected the Fuji 600C and Schneider 355 G-Claron covered perfectly. On loan from a friend I have a Fuji 450mm C and its big brother the 450mm CMW. Both covered, but the 450mm CMW was the clear winner, it had plenty of room for movements. The 450mm C also covered, but not nearly as much and it was quite a bit dimmer being 1.5 stops slower. The CMW is a great lens, but its huge.

    Also on the wide side I tried a 250mm Fuji SF lens. Several people have said that it covers when stopped way down. It illuminated the entire ground glass when wide open, but being a soft focus it looked strange. Stopped way down past f.64 it most certainly covers with some movements. However, I am not sure how well the edges look. Some people have told me the edges are fine others have said it the edges get funky. I will have to expose a sheet and give it a try later, but if it covers then I have pretty much all my immediate needs covered, though I at some point I will need to return the 450mm lenses or buy one from him.
