  8. Interesting look into the past. I always enjoy Keppler's pieces. And when reading Too Hot to Handle, I wonder where these writers went.

    Thanks for posting these, Marc!
     
  9. A great look back, Marc. The 1000-4000 was also sold later in Bauch & Lomb trim, but except for advanced in lens coatings changed very little from Swift's introduction. My dad apparently read this article when it was originally published because when I asked him (at the time I was about 11) why he bought the Vivitar 85-205 instead of the Swift, his answer covered most of the shortcomings mentioned in this article. I understood even better when I tried taking photos through telescopes later.

  10. Thanks Marc. I found Keppler's pondering on the relationship of eyes to camera really quite profound. Altogether, another excellent edition.
