I can only say that these lenses are outstanding.
Just a short note, that the Apo-Germinar W Guillaume mentions is different from the Germinar-W's or the Apo-Germinars Kerry is talking about. The 240mm Germinar W fits a Copal 1 shutter, as stated by Kerry, whereas the Apo-Germinar W is MUCH larger and heavier and comes in a size 3 shutter. All of them are great lenses, but with different designs and design goals.
