Whoops.. typo.... should be.....

Frank Filippone

Let me clean up some terminology confusion....In order of product
availability... ( Oldest lenses first....)

Rodagon and Componon are comparable lenses.
APO Rodagon and Componon S are comparable lenses
APO Rodagon N and APO Componon HM are comparable lenses.
APO Rodagon D and G are for some other application that I have now
forgotten... I think it was Graphics for the G...BIG prints.

They all came in ROUGHLY....
40mm and 50mm for 35mm
75 and 80 mm  for 6x6
90mm and 100mm  for 6x6 to 6x9
135 for 3x4 ( or sometimes for 4x5, but there is some light falloff in the
earlier series)
150 for 4x5
180 for I am not sure what... maybe 5x7, maybe not.

Something bigger for 5x7 and 8x10.  They were made up to 360mm commonly, and
I think up to 480mm.
