Fuji GL690

  1. Can anyone give me any information about the Fuji GL690? I just bought one with three interchangable lenses, 65, 100, and 150 The first test roll is "to die for." I think, however that I am missing the adaptor for the viewfinder for the wide angle lens (65mm) There is a concpicuous empty space in the top of the lens case.....

    <p>

    I will also try to post this in the MFD.

  2. You might find the special viewfinder for the 65mm lens hard to locate now. Look out for a 28mm (or universal) viewfinder for a 35mm camera, which will have about the same angle of view. You often see Russian (sorry - ex-USSR!) viewfinders at camera fairs for a few pounds/dollars/whatever.

    Hope this helps.

  3. Actually, Douglas, I'm curious about the 65/f8 lens and the 150/5.6. You don't often see these lenses for sale in the states.

    I have the 180/5.6 and think that the images I get are the sharpest I've ever seen at that focal length, any format. What do you think of the edge-to-edge sharpness of the 65? Have you shot any chromes with it?

    <p>

    Also, do you find much opportunity to use the 150/5.6? I would bet that it tightens up the frame of the 100/3.5 a bit, but with a 2 meter minimum focal distance, your image size would probably look smaller than the same image on your 100/3.5. Tell us what you think.
