    this is the triple convertible lens, not the soft focus/portrait lens. they say it is very much like the grandfather from the 1930s.

    It's like a 300/450/600, and they are selling it with the shutter optional, so that if you have another lens with a recent Copal #3 shutter, you can screw the cells right into it, and there is a slip-on aperture scale. The cells should fit any Copal 3 since the 1950s, but the aperture scale will only fit newer ones. Estimated price posted on f32 list is 1250 UKPounds without shutter.

    Fantastic lens! To think I was looking to buy a 450 and a 600 for my 8x10. This is a bargain indeed to have these 2 focal lengths plus a 300ish in one package. Love the idea of using my existing Copal 3 - already mounted on a board. Very cool! Any ideas on coverage? Did the older version cover any higher than 8x10?

    Has anyone heard what the specs are? How big is the image circle for each focal length? Filter sizes? Weight? Will each element be available separately? It would be really cool to have two rear elements and one front. Focal lengths from 271 to 645. WOW!

    oh, now i see why francessco is so exited ...lol
    it is for 8x10. still cool, though i dont use 810 format. i love companies do such iragular things.
    i only wish there will be some very wide, kind of soft lense, not like the apograndagons (which are fantastic, but sometimes painfully sharp).
    any way, sorry for interopting ignorantly the joy of very lf users.

    Okay, I'm really starting to think. Maybe a quasi-backpackable 8x10 is a possibility. One shutter, six nikon and cooke elements, and the following focal lengths: 1200, 800, 645, 476, 311, and 271.
