Hi everybody,

It’s obvious that vintage glass rarely turns out to be flawless but what kind of defects on (SF) lenses can be ignored and which not? What about scratches, chips and separation … will they affect the image and show up in the final print?

While we're on it, could you please throw in a “TOP 10” or “TOP 5” of famous SF brand names? Hopefully, some can be used on a 8x10 field camera …

Many thanks in advance,

Carsten
