The trouble with CRF
My first CRF was the Retina 142. Almost invisible, I had a few Canon SLR's, but admired the principle. Later came the big stuff: Hasselblad - and the Linhof 220, a big CRF. What a lens, Rodenstocks masterpiece, but the CRF still rubbish. And the Argus; problems problems problems.
And then came Kiev. Look at that! 9 Centimeter, bright, fast, easy. Wòw. But why does the lens say the church is on 4 meter? Will I èver get a good, reliable CRF?
