Very nice, would like to see the original, it looks incredibly detailed.

Last time we walked Brachina Gorge, which was around sunrise in late July, we spotted a Yellow Footed rock wallaby. As we were travelling with my Sister in-law and her husband from Germany, hanging around for pictures was secondary; although I was holding a Nikon F3, I missed the opportunity as it took off at a great rate of knots.

Thanks Mick the taking lens is a sleeper 'Commercial KOMURA 210 f/6.3
it is razor sharp with the Pacemaker Speed graphic.
The other is a Graflex OptAr W.A. f 6.8 Tiny but does it produce sharp shots also
when my eyes let me LOL :D
The other lens is a Tele-Arton 250 mm f/5.6 Small bellows draw and gives a different look to the shot selection.

Very interesting, I have a Komura T400 which, when used carefully, is quite sharp but not razor sharp. It really stretches the front capability of my Shen Hao camera, which could be a contributing factor to its apparent lack of super sharpness. I used it for some super close-up portraits on my Toyo 45G monorail, they were excellent.

I too have a Schneider Kreuznach 250 f/5.6 Tele Arton Linhof unit. Used it for years, even had the shutter repaired as it was a bit dodgy; if only it had more coverage I would still be using it; well, using it more than I do anyway. I've replaced it with a Fujinon 250 f/6.3 which I have taken too with gusto.

Been thinking of moving the Tele Arton on, must do something about that next year.

Mick.
