How many of you have ever shot with a Seneca Duo Triple convertible ? A few years back i met an old photographer that has been shooting 5x7 for over 60 years .We spoke for a while and he invited me to his house.He showed some of the most beautyfull pictures i have ever seen.Striking compositions ,sharpness and so on .This men is a painter with a camera i can even say he is a poet with a camera.His pictures can talk !!!! After a few hours of talking he introduce me to some of his equipment ( what i really wanted to see was his lenses ).He had Dagors,Meyers,Tessars,Achromatic Meniscus ,Seneca Duo and a TTH Cooke . I asked him wich lens was his favorite and he said without a doubt was the Seneca Duo and that 85% of all his pictures were done with that lens alone. The lens was old but in excelent shape.He told me that if had to use one lens for the rest of his life that one was the one .I tried to buy it from him without success.At the end of our meeting he gave me hi 7" Dagor as a gift. I searched everywere on the internet for one of those lenses until i came across one that the owner wanted $700.00 for it only because it was mint.He also said that ,this one was his best lens and he had used it for 40 years.Well , i had seen pictures taken with that lens and i closed the deal. I have Veritos,Dagors and the best lenses on the market but this one ... is my number one .Since i got it i started selling all my other lenses. This one is all i need for every situation !!!!! And since it is a triple convertible it covers me without distortion in all three settings . Someone outbided me on ebay for another one a few months ago.He got it for $480.00 .I'll be posting some pictures soon .
