The last lens in my comparison is the Graflex Optar 135/4.7. This lens is cooled to the rangefinder on my Speed Graphic so it’s bout a comparison to the other two lenses and a test of the rangefinder. It looks like the rangefinder are correct with is nice so I easy can do some han held 4×5 photography. Even this time did I shoot wide open at 4.7 and it looks ok. In the gallery all four shots are included for reference. First the Optar, then the non branded Petzval and last Aero Ektar at 2.5 and 5.6. The film are Ilford HP5 @320 developed in HC110 1:31 and scanned.
