Fujinon SW 105mm f/8

It’s been a very busy month in May. I took this picture on May 1st, but did not have it developed until today (June 5th). A special note to this picture is that it’s taken with the Fujinon SW 105mm f/8 lens that was successfully removed from my broken Fujifilm G617 camera and then mounted on a Seiko shutter I got from eBay. The shutter was originally made for a 90mm lens, but the marking of shutter speed and aperture was not engraved and can be easily replaced with the one from the broken G617. Also, a Linhof #0 lens board is used. Below is a picture of the reassembled lens.

I don’t know the diameter of the lens’ image circle. But since it’s made for 617 cameras, it covers 5×7 for sure. On a 4×5 camera, it should allow lots of movement. I’m very pleased with the result it renders and look forward to taking more pictures with it.

  1. How easy is it to take this lens apart?
