The Rodenstock APO Gerogon 150mm f/9
« on: September 29, 2020, 02:40:02 »
Here is a photo taken with the Rodenstock APO Gerogon 150mm f/9 as mounted on a lens board with the Cambo Actus Mini-B with the Nikon Z7 as the back.

I am comparing it to the Rodenstock APO Ronar 150mm f/9, which is also a process lens. It is said that the Gerogon is a wide-field process lens and has more internal glass in it and should (perhaps) perform better than the Ronar.

At first glance, first shot, it looks like it does at that.
