I was able to pick up a Fujinon-W 300/5.6 in a Copal 3 for a really good
price.
It was really good since the rear cell has some separation beginning out
at the edges.
It will be a while before it affects the image (it's just out on the
edges right now),
but the price was good enough that I normally I would have gotten the
shutter alone for the price paid.
I'm going to use it for a while and enjoy it while keeping my eyes open
for two sets of cells
1) 450/9 nikkor-m
2) 240/5.6 nikkor-w


Instead of the 240mm Nikkor, you might want to take a look at the Fujinon-
W 250mm f6.7. It's an 80 degree lens and has about a 400mm image circle
IIRC. Single coated, but still an excellent wide angle lens for 8x10. 6
elements, 4 groups??? Very popular.

Fuji also made a 250 f6.3 IIRC. It's is NOT the same at the 6.7. Less
coverage. Really designed for 4x5 or 5x7.
