    OMG!...Got it! ... Now I know!... Duh! ...OMG!...

    I ve posted a couple of threads "Where are the examples of Cooke PS945 portraits"...no answer....silence. This is of course an analog site, it is what we are all about! Do you think those PS lenses are perching in front of a multi meg D%$#@tal back?

    There are some online shot on Fujichrome

    So you need to go & look for them, I think Fujichrome's still a film not yet a sensor Unfortunately the production runs are quite small and the lenses rather expensive so you need to find images from the small number who bought one.

    Ian I have and am looking. Some of the posts from various venues past are up but the photos are gone. Even the Cooke site is quite dearth of portrait examples and some are not of portraits etc.

    Someone on the UK Large Format site has one, not seen any images though.

    But there are links to 5x4 transparencies on Cooke's own website.

    I have the cook XVb convertible lens and it is hard to find anyone having images with. But both lens are elite lens and see any imges on the web won't make it look good.

    Per Volquartz, uses the Cooke convertible quite effectively, he posts on this forum. I think side by side examples of the Cooke P945 and other SF lenses would indeed be quite beneficial and and the nuances noted. Clive has some lovely portraits on his website, possibly some of these are the Cooke...I have sent him an e mail.

    Wasn't one production run just a 100 of one of the Cooke lenses recently ? I think that's what I read, many will get bought by collectors and never used.

    I found Clive's site. He has a section with info on both the convertible 8 x 10 and the 4x 5 P945. A definitive portrait on this site is the one titled "Alex" it is however taken at f/8 and is quite sharp. The background is a "defining characteristic" at f/8. I have also found quite a lot of flower arrangements in color showing the soft side quality at wider f stops. A portrait photographer is probably most interest in how at these wider stops the lens affects the tonal contour of the face, don't you think?

    The Cooke XVb Triple Convertible is a wonderful lens :-)

    I managed to get hold of one of these PS945s but haven't been able to use it in anger yet. Will post when I've something to show...
