Nikkor M f9 450 : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Another long lens that has popped up is a Nikkor M f9 450. Any comments on its quality or use on a Deardorf 4x5 special (550mm bellows) for field work? It seems to be a good deal lighter at 22oz than my 2lb+ 240 Symmar

You might want to consider the Fujinon 450mm. MUCH smaller and lighter than the Nikkor, uses a Copal 1 board.

That's the Fuji 450/12.5 C, with an image circle of 486mm.
