- Multi Format
I recently exchanged prints with Donald Miller (which was a very pleasant and rewarding experience). I liked the print I sent him, and very much liked the print he sent me...but...his print, using the same 4x5 format and the same focal length lens (210) is far crisper, sharper and more detailed. It is exactly what I want from large format and am just not getting with my Geronar lens (it's okay of course, it's not as if it were made by Mattel, but it just isn't really good enough). So....what to buy when I can afford something? I think a 180mm lens would be a good choice as far as focal length, but I have no idea how lenses from Fujinon, Nikon, Schneider or Rodenstock compare at a comparable price point. Keh Camera Brokers has a decent selection at reasonable prices so there's at least one dealer I can look to for a used one. I'd appreciate your experience with the various offerings. Thank you for your help apug!
