    photomc,

    Congrats and condolences. An 8x10, a lens and a film holder, there is no known cure. The quest begins.

    Good luck and great fun.

    An update on the lens..set up a shot this weekend and used the mystery lens for one shot (the lens with III.5) and the Rodenstock Geronar 210. Both lens were set to f/64 and 1 sec. The negatives look good other than the terrible scratches from a Cibachrome tank seemed like a good idea at the time...

    So in spite of the scratches, the main purpose was 1. to see if I could verify the focal length - the two images are almost identical in coverage, so I am guessing the lens is a 71/2-8 inch and 2. to see if the old lens could make a decent image - it can, the other attempt with this lens flare just ate the image up...note to self avoid flare with this lens (this time I managed to shade the lens by using my boyish figure to shade the lens - ok you guys that have met me can get off of the floor now, it's not that BIG a stretch....he!he!)

    Conclusion?(s) - well had originally thought that I would pass on the lens and let someone else find a use for it....but now, think I will keep working with it. Big surprise was the 210 Geronar actually covered 8x10 (and with about 11/2 inch of front rise before running out of room). So, the lens is still a mystery, but seems to belong with the camera...now to try the one marked III.4 and see what the coverage is like with it.
