I have the Rodenstock Apo Sironar-S 210 f5.6 and I love it. Although I have not used the 240mm, I would estimate excellent results, as well. I will be purchasing the 150mm Sironar-S, as well in the next few months.

I have owned a Fujinon A 240/9 for a few months. Very sharp at f22-32 and tiny (Copal#0). Great lens on my Tech V. Hurry up if you want a new one! They are selling from last stock.

A 240 witch lens? Is this really for taking pictures of ugly ladies riding brooms?

Wouldn't you best stand to match the results from your 180mm and future XL by purchasing a 240mm Apo Symmar?

Nothing will match the 240 Apo Sironar S

Dan, you are naughty! Us poor froggies.

Paul, yes it is a bit of humor at the expense of someones understanding of English. He does have a sense of humor as I have corresponded with him. Lucky for all I don't try to post in another language or you would be laughing for weeks at the weak attempts on my part. The closest I get to a foreign language is to add an 'O' on the end of words and talk louder. Pretty sad I know.

As for the lens, Apo Sironar S is very nice & if our gentleman asking the question likes Schneider lenses (as it appears) then try the Apo Symmar in this focal length.
