    I'll post one tonight. I find the 12" to give a very good working distance between subject and camera when doing headshots. For me a 14 might be too much distance, and a 10 too little.

    If I didn't mention earlier... FP4 and totally forgotten exposure. I think I recall aperture being wide open, though.

    This is great to see. It gives me a good idea as to what the 300mm lens can do. Did you do any full figure photographs with the same lens?
    Thanks for your help Brian..really appreciated. Merry Xmas )

    Glad to help. I really like the 300, and this particular one.

    I find it better to do waist-up with a 210 and head-to-toe portraits with something even something shorter (like a 150 or 135). I don't like huge gaps between me and subject.

    Merry Christmas!

    Do you use the 135mm and the 210mm on your 8 x 10? These are the 2 sizes I have used with my 4 x 5 back. Do you use flash? What sort of settings are required for these lenses? Your info has helped me greatly. really appreciated. thanks

    No, I use them on a 4x5. I prefer available light and fairly wide-open apertures. I try to keep the shutter speed 1/30 or greater.

    Commercial Ektars are noted for good performance at more open apertures.
