16.5 inch B&L lens prospect

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

I am considering acquisition of a 16.5-inch B&L. Anyone know anything about its optical quality, or know of any superior alternatives? I am looking for something in the 16-20 inch range. Thanks.

Yes. A 16-1/2" Red Dot Artar. Extremely sharp, etc. Covers 8x10. A good one in a Copal shutter will cost you around a grand.
