Alot of people are interested in the image properties of older lenses on large format cameras, and I was wondering if there would be a demand for new lenses manufactured to high qulity but using old lens formulas for their unique image forming qualities. Because these would be low volume products, they would not be cheap compared to the cost of a used lens for the more common lenses, but it would be possible to buy in new condition the lenses that are very rare or impossible to find, so in some cases it might be an economic purchase as well. In addition to reproduceing the 'old masters' of optical designs, it would also be possible to bring modern coating technology to these old designs to improve contrast and flare resistance without destroying the intrinsic qualities of the optical formula. Also mounting options could be improved with lens mountings tailored for modern shutters. So how many of you would want to buy such a lens and what old lens designs would be most desirable? Kevin.
