Somehow a three line caption which I did not write crept onto page 33 of my Pop Photography May Inside Straight column. However I should have caught this interloper on page proof but failed to notice the intruder. It was my error. The unwanted caption about Biotar lenses reads: "OLDER AND BETTER: Subjective Quality Factor tests show the Biotar of a half century ago beats newer imitators in big enlargements."
I showed Subjective Quality Factor Test for the Biotar and a 2006 50mm f/1.8 Nikkor. My own conclusion about the merits of such lenses is clearly stated at column end: "If you test one (i.e. Biotar) you may be amazed as I at how very good a 1950 58mm f/2 Biotar is, even against today's best."
