    BTW, I "tested" my 240 Symmar by shooting the view from my cabin. As long as I could count the 16 subdivisions of each window of a farmhouse 8km (5 miles) distant by examining the negative (MACO UP100+, 18x24cm, in an ancient plate camera), I concluded that the lens is sharp enough for me.

    i test all of my lenses two ways:
    1. using a test chart at 50x the focal length
    2. in the field taking identical shots. subject must have elements with fine detail close in and at infinity.

    i always conduct the tests two or three times to ensure repeatibility.

    If I could sidetrack the discussion a bit--

    what's a good price range for a G-claron (210mm) with and without shutter?

    Thanks,
