    One of the things I'm just loving about LF are these sorts of details that as you say, make life more complicated!

    I am especially intrigued by old lenses and what they can do. No offence intended to the 35mm crowd (of which I'm still a member) but 35mm seems so cookie cutter compared to LF where the almost endless variables ensure a unique photo every time (maybe a bad one, but it will be uniquely bad!)

    I've sprung for a CD of The Lens Collectors Vade Mecum. I guess I'm a totally lost soul now!

    Oh boy, must be stupider than usual today! I lost track of where or what I was reading. It was Goertz Red Dot Artar that I had read had a 47 degree angle!

    (My first attempt and I've embarrassed myself before the great Galli! )

    Thanks Jim!

    The Great Galli? Cousin of the Great Oz? Nicer guy, though, than Oz was before the great unmasking.
