I have gone bananas and have purchased a 12x15" field camera dating from the 1890s. I am now looking for a lens. The camera has a bellows extension of about 32". I can't afford a modern lens, but I am not familiar at all with older lenses and their coverage, and I haven't come across that much information regarding 12x15 lenses. Could anyone suggest either a wideangle lens (I'm interested in architecture) or a portrait lens (I know they are somehow contradictory, but both things interest me) that might be suitable considering bellows extension and the fact that it is a relatively light field camera (i.e. no heavy lenses)?
I have read that the 355 Claron G might cover the format: might this be a good choice?
