    Steve, I've shot with RR lenses. A
    word of warning: Do not assume,
    by the examples mentioned here and
    the age of the design, that you will
    get "period" looking negatives from
    the lens. My experience is that the
    RR lenses render amazingly well,
    and that you have to go farther back
    in lens designs -- the Petzvals and
    beyond -- to get the sort of optical
    irregularities that one associates
    with very old photographs. When
    I shot with RRs, I would have been
    hard-pressed to distinguish their
    work from the negatives I made
    with modern Tessar-design lenses.

    Did you know you can also shoot with just the front cell or just the real cell from an RR Lens...yup...it usually doubles the focal length and becomes half as fast....now you are shooting with a 2 element Doublet, telephoto lens with a whole new character to the lens.
