    That statement is completely and utterly wrong.

    Thanks very much for posting that section. I already had a look at the free (old) version before even posting my original question but I need to get the latest version which may have better or updated info. Unfortunately I didn't see any reference to 'Graphic' Raptars however. Is the section you posted from the latest or the old version?

    I've looked at various brochures on http://www.cameraeccentric.com and found no references to 'Graphic' Raptars.

    This 1957 brochure makes no reference to 'Graphic' Raptars so maybe they belong to a later period or were more specialised and not relevant to the specific brochure below.
