Schneider Gaussoptik Software Available

In case you need to design a lens or two, Schneider offers what appears to be a free download of its Gaussoptik software here.

Elsewhere on Schneider's unusually informative website, you can see their newer tilt shift lenses for Nikon, Mamiya and Canon at the understandable prices of about $4500 each.

And speaking of Gauss, possibly the most important scientist and mathematician ever for among other things his elucidation of the theory of distribution which applies to virtually everything, we are coming up on Chladni Day at Soundwave Research Laboratories, sponsor of this project. I'll alert you to more on Chladni as the day approaches.

Ah yes... the rubbing of a long bow on a metal plate. Vibrations & mesmerizing patterns, indeed a day to celebrate!
