Hello Folks,
It's nice to be part of this community. I've been shooting for many years but find there's always plenty to learn about each format size!
I am upping my game from 8x10 to 11x14. I was wondering if any of you have worked with the Nikkor W 300 lens for 11x14? If so, I am curious about how much coverage it has.

420mm. Not quite enough for 11x14.

Welcome aboard!
A Nikkor 450 M will cover her good. A 14" Commercial Ektar should also cover and give you a bit of wiggle room. There are tables on lens coverage up there^^^^^^^^^^
Just click on the Large Format Home Page(up there^^^^) and follow the links to lenses.

I don't see where the link to the lens coverage is and most the lens information is geared to 4x5.
I need a fast lens and also a slightly wide angle, thus my asking about the 300. I have a Dagor 16.5 inch but it's F7.7
