Testing the Tench + Telek lens combination on 10x8.


Sinar Norma, 10x8 with M.P.Tench lens and Kodak -2 Telek lens. Some front lens tilt to get the foreground in focus as well as infinity. Approx f=200mm, f/22, 8 seconds, on Ilford Multigrade paper. Developed in PQ universal 1+9 for 1 minute.


The lens does not cover 10x8 at infinity, but vignettes nicely, and there is the expected interesting effects at the edge of the field. (This shot was of a particularly difficult contrasty scene, and parts were over exposed. The lens's contrast is fine.) Overall, it's a pleasant wide effect (maybe 35mm at 35mm equivalent) without being super-wide.
