NKKOR-W 300mm 5,6
I recently bought a Nikkor-W 300mm 5,6, and i would like to know your opinion about it.
I´m using it on 8x10 and 4x5
Should be good. I use a Nikon 120, 240, and the triple 600/800/1200 on my 8x10 rig. Can't complain.
A fine lens with good coverage.
Perhaps a bit bulky on 4x5 but that is up to you.
I use the excellent 300mm f9 Nikkor M for 5x4 work. Very small and light (under 300g) mounted in a Copal 1 shutter.
Film Cameras currently used:
Large/Stort-format: Ebony 45SU (field camera), Medium/Medlem-format: Mamiya 7, Hasselblad 503CW
35mm/Små format: Nikon: F4, D800 (yes digital, I know)
The 300/5.6 Nikkor W is excellent. Closed to f/22, it can cover up to 10” x 12” at infinity.
