    Images from 150mm and 135mm focal lengths to compare ! Anyone?

    Hello !

    I am in the process of getting a slightly longer than my 90mm lens for my 4x5 system and am very undecided between 135 and 150 focal lengths. I know that these are very close in terms of numbers, but would love to see some images taken from both focal lengths to have a better perception of what type of feel these have. It would also be extremely useful to see various type of images, like landscapes but also closer portraits and environmental portraits.

    If someone has the possibility, it would be nice to see some images produced with the Rodenstock Apo Sironar S "versions" of the above mentioned focal lengths, which is one of the options I am currently considering buying. About these Rodenstocks, does anyone know if one of the above is a better performer than the other, or more recommended so to speak, at wider apertures than the other - let's sat if one intends to shoot more at around f11 than around f22?

    Thank you to all who can take some time to respond and can help !

    Hello!

    I've got the Nikkor-W 150/5.6 and the Optar 135/4.7. Unfourtunately I've used the last one very few times.
    But, I can share what I've uploaded

    1. Optar 135 - Don't remember but I guess it was nearly open wide:

    2. Optar 135 - Don't remember but I guess it was open wide:

    Pardon me if I'm out of line here, but if you are going to compare two focal length lenses, shouldn't you shoot the same subject in the same lighting with both lenses?
    Plus, the same film and camera should be used. How can anyone make an educated decision based on dissimilar subjects using different cameras and different film. My personal experience with choosing between 135 and 150 MM lenses was to buy both, and keep the one I liked more. I opted for a 150, and dumped the 135 in favor of a 127.

    Hi!
    Of course you're right. But, those are my samples. Nicemate1 is free to dismiss them ;-)

    Cheers
