Rodenstock APO-Ronar 480mm f/9 : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Hello All,

I plan on testing a Rodenstock APO-Ronar 480mm f/9 for possible purchase, shooting distant landscapes on 4x5 transparency. I know about the other options in long lenses, and this Rodenstock is certainly bigger and heavier than most, but I am considering it because of the extremely low price available to me. Anyone shot this lens and care to comment on sharpness/contrast/color? Thanks for any info you have.

I use this lens on my 8X10. Very sharp and good contrast. I would recommend it. Good luck. Jeff
