    What do you get when you cross a

    gold rim dagor 210 front element with a g-claron plasmat 240 rear element in a copal 1?

    It seems to be around 200mm and its not as contrasty as the g claron 240 (ser# 14 xxx xxx w/ 52∅ front ele.) straight, the highlights toward the edges at least, I have only done a cursory check on the GG, have a slight pleasant glow. It focuses and seems sharp, really close to the g claron if not equal. I only thought to try it because I needed to solve a wide angle issue (painful story) and remembered a post by Jim Galli (Dagors I have loved), but the elements were different and assembled in a different order.

    Is it a common combination and if so what is it called? Till I hear differently I'm calling it QuIgor, after Marty Feldmans' character in Young Frankenstein.

    Longer element goes in front. I've done this with different focal length Dagors, I call them satz-Dagors and they work well. I've never thought of mixing the types.

    Unfortunately this is the only possible combination I can assemble with the elements I own, like I said it's a painful story. If after exposing some film I see that it doesn't focus properly the GR Dagor front and rear elements will be boxed and shelved indefinitely, and I'll pursue other wide-angle options.
