    New to the forum, but not LF

    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.
    Joni

    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 steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    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
