Re: Nikon Rayfact VF Float Lens Test Results Online Now

Dear Robert, I am a little late, but: Happy Birthday! THANKYOU very much for this great detailed testing, again! The sharpness out of the Componon + Scitex lens stack shouldn’t have been a surprise, after all the 2.8/35 Componon and S-3 110 are two of my best stacking lenses, seeing the performance ...

Polaroid ProPalette lenses

@kaleun96 Hi Kaleun96; as I worked - years ago now - with some Polaroid ProPalette 7000 and 8000 filmrecorders, with nice colour results (printed on Fuji 50 Velvia and other prof. films -- the lens you list (43.53 mm) would be of interest, but I fear not to be exeptional on our modern digital use......

Nikon Scanner lens

Hi nielsgoede,

there is no Nikon Lens with this label
Do you perhaps mix it up with the Minolta 5400 (lens)?

The Nikon Scanners (and lenses) are:
Nikon LS-40/ED 4000 and LS-50/ ED 5000

Your hard work!

Dear Miljenko, I want to THANKYOU here for all your hard work in these weeks ago. This was a massive time-consuming shooting, comparing and discussing - for instance which tube-lenses to choose for this or that lens or better even without. So, we have "neutral" MTF numbers now in our database, in ad...

80 mm as Tubelenses

...The older Olympus bellows lenses in my experience, have serious LaCA issues, but this could be a good one maybe? The prices aren't bad with that one at least. Robert, at least Ray listed this (4 years ago) Olympus OM Zuiko 80 mm Bellows lens better in the results as the M-Componon, in the fifth ...

Give me some suggestions for a good 50mm that would make a good lens to stack. I can't seem to find anything. I am thinking maybe the M-Componon 4/50? .... 28/80 sounds good also but 80 rear lenses are hard to find, the Componon-S 80mm seems to be okay. I would like to look into good 80mm lenses fo...

Next test up is the 135 Tube Lens Test with 8 EL lenses ... Robert, thankyou again for your work and showing the 150 mm Tubelenses. As I have a 135 mm Nikon EL and a Tominon 135 mm only, I am very curious about the 135 mm results, as this shorter FL could bring even stronger results (?) Good luck f...
