I've been hunting around looking for one of these lenses with no luck - anyone seen one around anywhere?

Howdy T! Do you mean the fuji-w 6.3???????

howdy eugene! how are things on the west side of town?



I have one but sorry I am not selling. This is a very sharp lense and it barely covers 8x10, Only about one third of an inch of movement. The 6.3 has a lot more coverage. If you are using 5x7 or 4x5 then this is a lense with good movement.

The f6.7 is the large coverage 250 with 398mm. The f6.3 does not have the coverage for 8x10.

I bought this lens for 8x10, but sold it. It does have a large image circle, but so does the lighter, smaller 240mm G-claron. I compared the two side-by-side and the images circles were similar.

Yes I checked my lense . I have a 6.3 the smaller circel. BUT IT DOES JUST COVER 8x10. I use it in an aluminum Eastman 8x10 and it is very sharp. I learned the cut off was also sharp when I tried o shift the lense.
