    with serial numbers between xxxxxxx02 and xxxxxxx26

    leica thread mount lenses not only fit leicas, but
    all the INEXPENSIVE AND WONDERFUL russian clones
    ( like zorki's fed's and their cousins )

    no need to fret stone .. only people who need to know
    leica jargon know leica jargon.
    I need to know the LF stuff, I even own a darn Schneider something or other for 4x5 haha and I don't know what the rest of the name means, just that someone I trust said its a decently good lens.

    its easy just go google the lens name ..
    schneider has a ton of info on their lenses
    and a chart to determine what vintage it is.
    just go to schneideroptics.com >> photography >> whatveryou want

    the problem with LF lenses is that some seem
    like they will cover 4x5 but ... they don't cover
    much bigger than 2x3 or 3x4 .. and vignette the corners
    (sometimes bad and sometimes worse ).
    there is a massive chart on the large format site that has
    tons of LF lenses on t, and all the information you could ask for.

I've never understood some of the silly names they have or what they mean, Kodak too, they don't make any sense... How can I tell what's better, at least with canon I know the L lens is the better one...

    Stone:

    If you have difficulty correlating product qualities with their names, whatever you do, don't:

    1) Buy a Durst enlarger (and try to figure out the accessories); or
    2) Buy a North American, Japanese, Korean, or Swedish automobile.

    Haha hey! I love my 2001 Saab 9-5 Aero and it makes perfect sense to me :-p

    I'm assuming a durst is a good enlarger? LOL
