    Does ayone have any experience with the 210 F9 G-CLARON? Is the coverage good for 8x10? I have read reports stating both. Are the Clarons' multicoated?

    Ron Wisner seems to really like these lenses.

    I use a 210 G-Claron for copy work and it is very sharp edge to edge on 4x5. Ken

    My 210 G-Claron arrived today! Wow, what a difference a newer shutter makes! Both of my other LF lenses are ancient. I'll be drilling and filing out a lensboard tonight and testing it all out. Midwest Photo Exchange was great to work with too.

    Was just thinking (an activity that always gets me in trouble)...

    Will I need a center filter for this lens on the 8x10?

    NO, there is no problem other that less coverage than you always seem to want. Just remember to stop down to f 32 for good coverage and movement.

    for infinity work, i.e., non macro, you should stop down to at least f22. shouldn't be an issue for the 8x10 with DOF considerations. a good day will be when you only have to stop down to f45!
    My 355 G-claron has marked stops down to f90, I assume your lens does too.
