Sadly perhaps I’ve always been a little too much of a curmudgeon to quite believe any of that public relations babble from either Sinar or Linhof despite aiI the pics. of projected lens charts, trolleys of lenses andd men with biros in white lab coat pockets. I tend to just think that the Apo-Sironar -S which were very late designs with ED glass were at the highpoint of what was possible. I also had a Super Symar HM 120mm which similarly had absolutely staggering resolution.
About six years ago my van got broken into and the Toyo camera, and the lenses all got stolen and have never turned up; the police have never found them and I doubt that the people that took it all even knew what it was that they'g scored. Oh well, such is the way of the world I guess. At least I have some benchmark negs,
