Optics Theory - This forum is aimed towards the TECHNICAL side of photographic OPTICS THEORY. There will be some overlap by camera/manufacturer, but this forum is for the heavy duty tech discussions. This is NOT the place to discuss a specific lens or lens line, do that in the appropriate forum. This is the forum to discuss optics or lenses in general, to learn about the tech behind the lenses and images. IF you have a question about a specific lens, post it in the forum about that type of camera, NOT HERE.

135 Elmarit

I find myself lusting after this lens (the 135mm Elmarit with goggles), but from everything I have read it seems that it can be a nightmare to get it to focus correctly. Will someone either convince me to take the plunge or douse my dreams and dissuade me from doing so? Some firsthand experience would be great.

I've only ever used two but both worked perfectly. I sold the first 10 years ago because I seldom used it on film but bought the other 3 years ago because a friend lent it to me to try on digital, and I love it, especially on the M8.

Cheers,

R.
