They are cheap (I think I paid $60) with a large image circle so maybe take a look at that one. I seem to recall that it is a six element design. I am working off of memory though so don't quote me...
I keep looking for information regarding less pricey options vs. "G" series lenses but continue to come up short. From what I gather the Apo Process lenses can work fairly well but I'm pretty nit-picky and want my prints very sharp center-to-corner with plenty of micro-contrast. If I can see very little difference up-close between murals made through Agfa Repromaster or Apo Nikkor lenses vs. G-Componon or Rodagon-G lenses then I'll certainly save that cash and use one of the former. If the differences are significant then I'd rather keep looking for the latter.

My ignorance is always costing me much time and/or money...
