    My 65mm f/8 Super Angulon is in a #00 Synchro Compur. The shutter was running a bit slow, so I sent it off to Carol (Flutot) Miller for a CLA. It now runs like a champ! You may want to drop her a note with a description of your problem (she's a member here)... she just might be able to fix it.

    I think I'm in the minority here. I used to own a 90mm SA in a Japanese shutter. I hated this lens. I could not get a sharp image to save my life. Any picture I took with it, I could not enlarge and even contact prints were not that sharp. It was as contrasty as it was sharp. Yes, it was coated, I think multi-coated. I sold it as soon as I could. I have many other lenses and all of them are better lenses.

    When you use it, take a real close and honest look to see just how sharp it is.

    Mine's pretty good--1970s single coated version. You might just have had a dog, Mike, or maybe it had been disassembled and not recollimated properly, or maybe you were missing a spacer ring.

    90mm SA

    I have one of these in a compur 00( I asssume as the mounting hole diameter is 27mm can anyone confirm?) I bought it for $95 from a local camera shop that got it on an estate sale. They didn't want to bother with having it checked out so they sold it "as is". I sent it to SK Grimes, they cla'd it and repaired the broken case.The glass is mint and its sharp as a tack, or maybe sharper, the shutter works fine but I would rather have it have a"view option" than focusing using the bulb setting and locking cable release. Can anyone confirm the compur 00 question?
    No escaping it!

    Mine now runs about as slow as possible - I ripped the shutter mechanism out of the shutter so it now functions as a lens in a barrel. It is impossible to fix after my modifications.

    One day I'll get around to getting a "new" shutter for it, or I'll just sell it as is. Pity, because it was one of the sharpest lenses I've ever had (Linhof stamped and all ....).

    I'll second that. When I got back from my Oregon trip, I sent Carol my favorite Schneider 135mm to CLA. She did a fantastic job and her turnaround was quite fast. I wouldn't hesitate to send her shutters in the future.

    After David took a look at the lens, I am glad to know that it's older than I am and can still work. The haze won't be too much trouble for me, but I have to try it to find out. A little cleaning would be very helpful. Shutter seems ok.

    Also, I got a beautiful caltar IIN 150mm form Jeff, love it. and some films holders from Jorge, plus I already had tripod, large black T-shirt, and light meter ready, what do I missing here? well, a camera!

    Thanks for your help, I'll try to get the camera ASAP and start shooting! Just can't wait.
