I am looking at buying this lens used, it is like new. I understand it is a little known lens but of very high quality. Any feed back would be great.

My understanding is that this is an earlier version of the Horseman 90 mm lens (both made by Topcor). If true, then it is one of the only 90 mm lenses that is not of a wide angle design, but rather of a standard design. The main drawback of the lens for 4 x 5 is that, if I recall the specs correctly, it will allow for virtually no movements. For roll film, however, it's supposed to be a great lens.
