I still can't believe I have this lens. I had a 102mm Super Six that was stolen Sad and in looking for a replacement came across this. I find it quite a bit harder to use than the shorter lens, and not only because it weighs 3.5 kilos. The depth of field is so shallow that one has to be quite far from the subject or the background turns into a total blur. But in the sweet spot is is very sweet indeed.

Actually it turns out to be quite a bit longer than advertised. Eight inches should be about 203mm, but in reality the focal length approaches 230mm. And that at f2.0--quite insane...

Haven't had much time to play with it, but so far these are the images that I like. This is 35mm full frame. The lens would cover 8"x8"...It may really be time to buy a view camera...

Absolutely love that. There looks to be enough depth of field for a person face on to you.

Or a person sitting on a motorbike face on to you.
