Discussion in ‘ Large Format ‘ started by daver 1 , Feb 2, When the EBC multicoated mm and mm C series models came out in mid, in smaller, cheaper Copal 1 shutters, there was little reason to continue offering the mm and mm single coated L models in spendy 3 shutters. Here’s some interesting questions I have not been able to answer by perusing the literature that I have access to. In addition to the original Seiko shutters, and the current all black Copal models, Fujinon large format lenses were offered in at least two other styles of Copal shutters. I’ve used a once or twice and have no complaints about it either. All other models switched to outer lettering in the early s.

I have owned both the A and the C and love them both. Observe the colors of the reflections in the front element group. They are ruji tested to ensure quality, and their performance is as good as new cartridges.
I have the and All other models switched to outer lettering in the early s. Perhaps they were contemplating a different model that never made it to market. Also, in the accompanying text, it is stated specifically that the two other remaining members of the original W line the mm and mm are EBC fujo.
In addition to the original Seiko shutters, and the current all black Copal models, Fujinon large format lenses were offered in at least two other styles of Copal shutters.
I did agonize over the decision, because the Symmar was definitely larger and heavier.

Within 240aa ,Ship By: For purposes of this discussion, I am designating the different types of Copal shutters as follows: Through Ebay, I managed to obtain samples of each along with a bunch of other stuff I don’t really need and can’t really afford.
Based on the compact size and excellent performance of these two lenses, Fujji decided I to try some other Fuji lenses. I’d be willing to purchase any such references at a fair price, or pay for photocopies and shipping, or make arrangements for sending me high resolution scans either on Zip disks or CD-ROM.

Never saw a bit of mdifference in performance between the two; just in the space they took up and the weight. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
