    Also, there is some more info on this lens:

    This lens "squeaks" around 11x14 and also buzzes wide open.
    Thank you for being so helpful. (sarcasm smiley)

    Would you care to translate the above? Or is it just meaningless babble?

I'm glad better information was available.
    Somewhere, I have a link to what seems to be a reliable list of the German numbers; I'll post it as soon as I find it.
    Edit:
    CPG Berlin:
    up to 5,000 -- up to 1891
    30,000 -- 1896
    100,000 -- 1900
    200,000 -- 1908
    300,000 -- 1915
    400,000 -- 1920
    500,000 -- 1922
    600,000 -- 1923
    750,000 -- 1926

    I've seen worse looking lenses clean up to be just fine. The Aplanat is similar to the Rapid Rectilinear, both can be surprisingly good.

    Any idea what focal length the Goerz is?
