    Pardon my ignorance on this subject, but you can put a 30/35" Artar in shutter? Which type? Copal #3?

    Yes, it will probably be something large like an Ilex #5. I had a 47.5 inch Artar in an Ilex #5 once.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    I was unaware that you could still find working Ilex shutters.

    a #5 compound will work for mounting a 42" or 47.5" RDA, IIRC...

    Why not Copal #3? Pardon my ignorance of the intracacies of shutters.

    Murph,

    If you do a little research on the size of an Ilex 5 or a Compound 5, relative to a Copal 3 it might be more evident.

    As big as a Copal 3 is, it is just so much smaller than the Ilex 5 or Compound 5.

    A big lens requires a big (and often expensive and / or obsolete) shutter.

    And if it is too big, you might not be able to fit it into a shutter at all...

    Regards,

    Len
