    I got two old Kodak lenses in shutters for less than $10 plus shipping, thinking that I might be able to use one for my 4x5. They are a Kodak Anastigmat 153mm/7.7 to 45 and a Kodak Anastigmat 105mm/6.8 to 32. I got them today, cleaned the glass gently as well as the mechanical parts of the shutter and bingo!, they show very nicely on the 4x5. The 105mm has a very crisp center and there is a bit of light fall off at the corners, but again, that's pretty normal with a WA. The 153mm is simply sweet all around. Both uncoated, functioning shutters and aperture rings.

    Who sez you can't go cheap on the lenses?? ;)

    Well, anyway, not planing to get rid of my better babies but you know, a back up lens (and a cheap insurance) is always welcome.

    Very sweet! :thumbup: Some good stuff is definitely out there. Helps when you know what you're looking for and aren't afraid to try a little CLA, too.
