Thread: 210 lenses for 8X10

    210 lenses for 8X10

    Which current production 210mm lenses provide sufficient coverage for 8X10 while allowing some movement? Is there a super-symmar XL 210 in the works? Regards from Toronto,

    Suppossedly Schneider has stopped making the 210 Super Angulon, but I imagine you can find a N.I.B. one at dealer like Lens & Repro or Quality Camera

    Ron Wisner likes the 210 G-Claron

    The Rodenstock Apo Sironar S allows a tiny bit of movement.

    The recently discontinued Apo Sironar W allowed quite a bit

    The recently discontinued 200 mm Grandagon N offered extreme movements.

    What about the Schneider 210 Super Symmar HM? And greetings from Nova Scotia.

    Other responses have pretty well covered the water on 210 lenses. Neither Super Symmar HM nor Apo Sironar W give much movement. You can about double the room for movements by moving up to the 240 Apo Sironar S, which is sharp, light and has an image circle of 372 per B + H web site. This is my choice for moderate WA in 8 X 10 among modern lenses. Super Symmar 150 XL gives you image circle of 386 for a much wider angle lens. You can pick up one of these new at about half the US price in Hong Kong.

    I noticed a 210 SA on ebay today. Starting bid is $3000. At least it's a little cheaper than a new one.

    I may sell my 210SA sometime in the new year, possibly the spring, if you want t o wait that long?

    It is also worthwhile mentioning the Nikkor AM ED 210 f/5.6, which covers up to 10x12. Still expensive - the Japanese catalogue lists it at Yen198,000, but you can get in new in Japan for between the equivalent of $1600 - $2000. Heavy, at 850gm, but it does have a good reputation.

    How about a G-claron 210mm? I have not used it, but established photographers (including Ron Wisner) inform me that it is fine for 8x10. I use a 240mm G-claron for 8x10 with plenty of movements.
