Kodak Ektar 203mm f/7.7 Lens

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I need advise on whether the Kodak Ektar 203mm f/7.7 lens is good enough to be used for 4x5 color photography. It has a Kodak Flash Supermatic shutter. Is this shutter usable with electronic X-sync?

Hallo! well, I own the same lens that you own and I am happy about its results in color and b&w. I don't know about the shutter because mine is a very old compur shutter. I've asked questions on this lens and in the forum you can find a lot of specific information on it. The ektar is a legendary lens! Regards.

I had this lens, and it's very sharp, coated, and excellent in color use. It does, however, have somewhat limited coverage.

As to the flash, mine was also in a Compur shutter, but I am certain the Flash Supermatic shutter will handle X-synch.

I am curious about the dimensions of this lens. I especially would like to know the diameter of the front portion of the lens.
