Did your friend find his lens? Dagor, by the way, is an anogram for Double
Anastagmatic [by] Goerz. It's a design. While the lenses were made by
Goerz, after time, the design was remanufactured at the request [read
financed by] Doug Bush for his big camera. The camera failed because of the
weight. In my opinion, the heavier the large camera, the better because
they're steady; but there's a limit to its weight -- in a practical sense --
due to the size and shake from breezes or even shutter release.
