Testing the equipment.

When medium format isn't big enough: 4x5, 5x7, 9x12, 8x10 and even larger.

Three lenses 4 photos, one the subject moved so I shot again, lenses are:

Symmar 210mm f5.6, Voigtlander Collinear III f7.7 No5, Goerz Berlin Doppel Anastigmat serie III/2 180mm f6.8 (Dagor).

Could you say which photo has been taken with each lens? :) The photos have been cropped.

#1

#2

#3

Btw, please say which one you like more (if any) and why, I own the Goerz Berlin and Symmar but not Collinear which may not be cheap.
My wife says so far Collinear-Symmar-Goerz in that order.

Thank you for watching and comments are welcome :)

I'll go with Symmar, Goerz, Collinear. All equally fine as far as composition is concerned. I'll say that #2 is sharpest, and has the least reflections in her glasses, so that's my favorite.

Thank you Phil, the order is Collinear, Symmar and Goerz.
It seems Symmar shows no reflection on glasses (modern or coated glass)?
For portraits I wont use Symmar, I still haven't found any better than the Heliar or that odd Tessar I have for LF.

Shows you I wasn't paying good enough attention on your previous portraits, and didn't bother to review them. :oops:
