    G-Claron Lenses

    I finally got a chance to get out and do some photographing today with my recently purchased G-Claron Lenses.

    Is it just me or does the image on the ground glass actually look "Sharper" and more clear than it does with other lenses?

    I have 3 of them and they do rock, indeed! My barrel mount Apo-Nikkor process lenses appear to be in the same class.

    I've got a 150mm, 210mm and 305mm G-Claron's, I am sold on the series. Tack sharp, contrasty, and much better lenses than I am a photographer

    [color=black]The G-Claron was the predecessor to the Super Symmar - is that right?[/color]

    I've got a 305 G-Claron and it makes some super sharp negatives. Every time I put a new neg on the lightbox I'm amazed all over again. But... I've got two other 12" lenses (Kodak Comm Ektar, Rod APO Sironar) that seem to produce the prints that I like best. I ain't giving up on the G-Claron especially since it's the only lens I got for 7x17. Maybe there's more ingredients in the soup than just sharpitude.

    G-Clarons are sharp lenses as the 99% of modern lenses.
    Their plus is the coverage around 80 degrees that make them more usefull than the Plasmat lenses (Apo Symmar, Sironar). These have a little less of coverage and a huge weight so not so good for backpack or to carry in the fields.
    They are not the ancestors of Super-Symmar because they were designed for repro machine.
    Enjoy the G-Clarons a true sleepers and great glass.
