I just got me a Graphic View. I was just curious if any of you have experience with this lens and thus an opinion of it's optics. It's a good-looking lens and an ektar so I'm sure it is probably totally decent.

Thanks,

A member of the Commercial Ektar Group. It covers 5x7 format so it will have a lot of movement room on a 4x5.
It was very good to excellent out of the factory door but due to being dropped, played catch with, polished with extra fine steel wool (aka the Tshirt the user was wearing at the time), or other rough handling it may not preform as well as it once did so ask it.

The shutter may need servicing and the glass may need internal cleaning.
