240mm f/9 Apo-fujinon

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

I was thinking of purchasing the following lens 240mm f/9 Apo-fujinon. I am told it will cover 8x10 format, but was wondering if anyone had more information. What is the image circle size/ if it covers 8x10 than with how much movements? Thanks in advance.

It's the same as the Fuji A 240mm F/9 listed on New Large Format Lenses for 8x10.

As Sheldon mentioned, you can find specs for this lens at the Fujinon section of my large format homepage. The direct link for the specs on the A series lenses from my most recent (March, 1997) Fujinon brochure is:


This lens was made from the 1970s through mid-1998. Early samples (1970s) were single coated. Starting in early 1980, this lens was offered with the Fujinon EBC multicoating process.

I have not used this lens on 8x10, but I do use it on 4x5 and 5x7 and think highly of it. For more of my comments, see:




Hope that helps, Kerry
