12" Red Dot APO Artar - Buy it?
Does anyone have an opinion on this lens? I am currently looking for a tele lens to round out my kit before I stop buying equipment for a while. (promised my wife) I currently have a 90/8 SA, 140/4.5 Ilex Paragon Anastigmat, and wanted a telephoto lens to use primarily for landscape work. I live in Alaska and while my 90mm Super Angulon will be great for the wide angle stuff up close a lot of times the better shot is farther away since I live right in the mountains. There are so many to choose from in the $300-400 range.
Thanks for you opinions, and any ideas for lenses if you think the Artar isn't a good choice. Also what shutter does this lens come in? I will need to buy a lens board and would prefer to buy them together. Here is the one I am eying at KEH.
