    I heard that Seiko shutters were now impossible to repair due to lack of spares. Anyone care to comment?

    Thanks

    My experience with the Fujinon-W is that they are very sharp and contrasty.
    Some pictures benefit from this and some don't. The Fuji lenses can be a bit clinical and lifeless just because they are so sharp and contrasty.
    If that applys to you I don't know. It all depends on you personal style and subject.

    It will be very different from the Xenar thats on its way.

    My guess is that you will not be disappointed if you buy it.

    Drat, too bad you lost the lens.
    I've been in that situation, where I take toooooo much time to think about it, then when I decide to buy it...the item is gone :-(

    I would be interested in knowing about the Seiko shutters as well, since several of the lenses I looked at were in a Seiko shutter.

    I haven't tried to have one repaired, but the two Seiko shutters I have run very well. Heck Seiko makes great watches, so I figure their shutters can't be too bad.

    My experience is the same as Gary's.

    The only reason I raised the question of repairing Seiko shutters was that when I had to have the Seiko shutter on a Mamya TLR lens repaired 5 repair shops said it could not be done due to unavailability of spares.

    I'm sure someone here can tell me the filter size of the Fujinon 135 5.6 W?

    46mm unless you have a NW or CM-W.
