So Michael, now that you have both lenses. How do they compare? It’s hard for us to compare at this resolution. Are you happy with your new acquisition?

The Ronar is sperb. The Germinar is also great, but (IMO) more like a very special portrait lens. I requires a very long bellows, which I have. I have to use it some more, but  it is a unique lens and will have to be worked with for a while for e to figure out what is best for it.

I think the Germanar was a different post was it not that is a 150/8 I was asking how you liked the Apo Geragon 150 F9 that you purchased?

Both are great.
