    Thanks, yeah I did not expect much difference between them.
    Angulon 165/6.8 sounds good but Super-Angulon is a bit high on price.
    Oh, btw, if there are any good lenses in FL ranging 135-180mm I am all ears.
    I'd like to spend around $400.

    krifartida thanks.
    Checked those Fujinons and they look good. Very interested in 150mm but the seller only ship to Japan and USA. I can't even ask the seller.
    I had Fujinon in mind but since Fuji is not known for lens manufacturer (for me) I left out. I might have another look.

    Sorry Ian, but I missed the Crown Graphic part.
    I have both the A165 and SA165 but you have to be rather obsessed with coverage to try it on a 4x5 (it's excellent on 8x10 though).

    Fujinon EBC are considered to be some of the best lenses out there, the coating technology is by far the best.
    they come up every now and again on ebay. i would keep an eye pealed for them.

    Fuji Japan used to make the LF lenses, in the same plant they now make "hasselblad" lenses for the H series and Xpan cameras. in japan the hasselblad H and Xpan are sold under the Fuji brand. needless to say they are good, if they can carry the hasselblad name, but they are very very very good on their own accord.
    Fuji's main industry is semi conductors, chemicals and Cathode technology.

    I have had good results with my Fuji lenses and I would think any of the 150's mentioned would equally as well.

    Is this a troll? Or a knowledgable question? The lenses were made by Fujinon Inc. which in 2010 was absorbed into Fujifilm Corporation, from which it originated. The lens division is now called Fujifilm - Optical Devices Division.

    Anyway, if you like Fuji lenses here is an inside look at the lens manufacturing plant. Very impressive:

    The Caltar IIN series are the very same lenses as the Rodenstock APO Sironar N and Grandagon N, just engraved differently and sold by Calumet. Calumet is a large educational supplier and a large fraction of Caltar IINs that come up on the used market have seen minimal use. Brand name recognition being what it is the Caltars are real bargains in the used marketplace. The 210mm f/5.6 ones (301mm IC) routinely sell for less than $200 in pristine condition on eBay. Mine is exquisite--as is my 135mm Caltar IIN.
