Doug Busch ULF

As I recall, these lenses were made by special order for Douglas Busch by Melles Griot. His website (http://www.superlarge.com/deGoldenBusch/
) doesn't provide much information other then mentioning a seven element 19" lens. I don't know anything about Douglas Busch, but I am sure he could answer your question...
Hi there Jason
looks like Doug Busch was once a very busy guy and had the ULF end of the market totally covered before Ron Wisner and others got in. I must admit only ever seeing pictures of his cameras and noticing some unusual design features.
Now I'm wondering, for a guy to expend so much time and effort (and hard cash) developing all this wonderful equipment, a total system no less, why we don't see and hear of more users out there. Was he ahead of his time, too expensive or the products didn't meet expectations?
Sandy and David,
the connection to Ilex is interesting and appears to only be shutters. Did Ilex produce their own glass for their shutters or was it someone elses rebranded?
If that 610 on ebay didn't have such a high starting bid (and likely to go for double that) I'd be tempted to bid on it just to try it out. Maybe Jim Galli could buy it and let us know how it performs.
