    Good pointer.

    Lots of the stuff there applies to a wider area than just medium format.

    I had an article on lens adaptations on usefilm.com at one time, but I think it's not there anymore. It might be on some internet archive somewhere (waybackmachine or some such).
    looked around but I'm really not all that familiar with usefilm.com, and I couldn't find an article anywhere. Would it have been in with the forums?

    cheers,

    They used to have a section of articles, like we do on APUG, but I think Al removed it, or at least mine's not there. I'll hunt around and see if I still have it somewhere, and maybe I'll post it on APUG.

    okay... here's a wrinkle in my macro/portraiture lens search that came up. Wifey was browsing through various lenses online, determined to find something that will work for me but be faster than f/4. She found the Voigtlander 125/2.5 APO-Lanthar Apochromatic 1:1 Macro Lens and suggested that I get a cheaper macro like the Vivitar 90 2.5 Series I for now and get the Voigtlander later on, then eBay the Vivitar.

    Here's the question -- I'm intreagued by the potential edge effect of the Helical Canon 100mm f/4 Macro, but I can't find any information on whether I could reasonably expect the same or better results from the Voigtlander. Any thoughts from the chorus?

    There are a lot of pretty good lenses in this range. It's hard to go wrong.
