    I agree, Lee.

    I have a 75mm/4.5 Ektar that is a five element design and every bit as sharp as my six element 80mm/5.6 Componon.

    Here is the other thread:

    Thanks Rich.
    Took a little searching but I found it. Thought I was having an almost senior moment. (sounds better than a flashback...)

    Nick,

    Unless things have changed Rodenstock offers the 75mm f4.5 Rogonar S for 6X6 lens for enlarging. If you are referring to the 75mm f4.0 Apo Rodagon D 1X and the 75mm f4.5 Apo Rodagon D 2X these are duplicating lenses intended for .8-1.2X for 6X6 and 1.2-2.5X for 6X7 cameras. I have the 2 75mm Apo Rodagon D lenses for usage for close-up/macro work for use on 35mm and 4X5.

    All I know is the US rep for Rodenstock jumped on me for saying all the top of the line MF lenses are 80mm. He was talking about the N not the D model of the lens. But this was a few years back.

    Nick,

    No problem. Presuming I have the latest .pdf download of the Rodenstock enlarging lenses from Linos, the current offering appears to be the 80mm f4.0 Apo Rodagon N for 6X7.

    No worries. I guess they kept hearing from people like me saying 75mm wasn't the good stuff -))

    However, in many ways your question is irrelevant since you should be trying to satisfy yourself and not the gallery visitors. I rather get the impression that you want us to provide the excuse for you to embark on the purchase of MF goodies, but that must come from within.
    On the contrary. My inclination is to sell the MF stuff and buy high quality prime lenses for 35mm but I can't help feeling that I should strive for higher technical quality alongside the elusive creative element. Also I am finding that lugging MF equipment up onto the hills is a bind that would be eased by carrying lighter equipment but am bothered at potentially compromising quality too much.
    I take the point that I should take pictures for my own satisfaction.
    Cheers

    [QUOTE=df cardwell]A 12 x 16 image from Delta 400 or 100 ( or Kodak T Max films )
    is well within the reach of a competent photographer. It isn't THAT hard, and lots of folks can do it.

    Can you tell the difference between prints made in MF and 35, side by side ? Well, sure. Does that make the 35mm image inferior ? Of course not. Does that make MF superior ? No.

    Here's the unspoken reality: you can make superb images from 35 in conditions that are impossible to make ANY image from MF.

    When and where you make pictures is the real question.
    Sunny days on a tripod, MF.
    Handheld at twilight, 35mm.
    In between, that's up to you.

    Thanks for reminding me that it's all a compromise and MF is as much a compromise as 35mm.
    Cheers
    Jeff
