As for using it, it covers 4x5 wide open with some movements and (without anything to compare it with) certainly seems sharp enough.

As far as I can tell, they don't make this one any more...
My mistake... I was thinking of the 300/8 and 400/8 ones, advertised for about 400 grams. The 300 does seem to barely cover 4/5 but the 400 seems OK and is still light.

Anyone uses these ?
