    Dear Zhenya,

    Mine was fine in colour too -- an amazing lens!

    Thanks for the kind offer of an invitation letter but that isn't the problem: it's 2 trips to Paris, one to drop the passport, one to pick it up. This adds 500 euros or so to the cost of a trip, wastes 3-4 days, and makes a visit to Holy Mother Russia less attractive.

    But as you say, with any luck it'll change soon.

    Cheers,

    Roger

    Dear Roger,

    judging from what I can see on B&W negatives, the colour results should be quite pleasing, too. I always thought that there's no better way to notice if the lens is badly behaved but to shoot some B&W with it. To me, some unsharpness or contrast loss are more obvious in BW than in colour.

    What a strange situation with the Russian visa! I hope things would improve soon... don't they take passport copies yet? What a shame

    Cheers,
    Zhenya

    Excepting as always the most wide-angle of all LF lenses - the Goerz Hypergon - which has been out of production for almost a century...

    Yes, according to Thiele the 6.3 Tessar lived on in a 1947 redesign for the 135mm and the 210mm versions, as well as in a few 300mm (30cm) ones redesigned 1946. The last batch (210mm) was made in 1975.
