    Similar to the experience of others, my 240 G-Claron covers my 8x10 just fine. But, there might be 8x10s larger than mine.

    Thanks guys. I pushed the buy it now button last night and am just waiting for the guy to contact me. Hope I did not pay too much. Was $350US too high or is that somewhat average.

    Was it already mounted in a shutter with an accurate aperture scale? If so then that sounds like a good price. If it was in barrel then that sounds a bit too high in comparison to the price recently paid for brand new 240 Germinars here on Apug.

    No, but you can buy one from SK Grimes relatively cheaply.

    Here are some reduced shots and crops drumscaned at 2000 dpi.
    G-Claron 240mm at around F22 I think.

    Also this was with a 8x10 Cambo SC which is not the squarest or stiffest camera in the world. Actually its pretty medeochre IMO.

    Kodak E100S and Efke 25. Howtek 4500.

    The Efke crop is an underexposed test shot.

    With the fountain shot the upper corner trees were tilted out of focus. i should have just stopped down and shot, so the upper corners are not indicative of lens sharpness. Check the lower corners on that one.

    All are unsharpened.

    Does 210 G Claron share the same focus scale as 240 G Claron?

    If it's the same as a 210 G-Claron (also f9), I could snap a photo for you. There's no flat planed scale to scan on mine for the top. I only have scales mounted on the sides of my shutter.

    Mark,

    Congratulations!

    I hope you enjoy that G-Claron as much as I like mine. It is a great lens for 8x10.

    WHat scale is on your shutter? 210?

    There is precisely a 1/3 stop "spacing" between the 210, 240, 270, and 305mm FL. The way to use this information .....


    If your shutter was calibrated for a 210 lens and you want to use a 240, then F11 as indicated is really F11 + 1/3. F11+ 1/3 = F11 +2/3 and FF11 + 2/3 = F16. Does this help you?
