    Re: Good choice for a 5x7 wide angle?

    My 5x7 wide is a f9.5 Wollensak 159mm WA Velostigmat "yellow dot."
    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.

    Sorry yep I meant 120mm! I already have a 210mm. Wanting one that will allow for plenty of camera movements without breaking the bank!

    Absolutely!, IMO best value 121mm f8 Super Angulon. Often available for well under $200, typically about $150, bargain just over $100.

    Would be hard to go wrong with a 135mm WF Ektar.Click image for larger version.

    72mm f5.6 SAXL. This is really, really wide on 5x7. Front to back perspective exaggeration is serious with this lens or can be used as a serious interior space expander.

    110mm f5.6 SAXL. More often used 5x7 wide angle.

    150mm SAXL. Medium wide 5x7, gets used a LOT.

    Got them new when they were introduced in the later part of the 1990's. Have owned and used then all since.

    90mm f4.5 Grandagon happened later. When something between there 72mm and 110mm must happen (not often, IMO better contrast gradation than Nikor).

    72mm SAXL
    90mm SAXL (or 90mm Nikkor-SW f/4.5)
    110mm SSXL (or 120mm Nikkor-SW)
    150mm SSXL (or 150mm Nikkor-SW)

    ++1 or the WA Dagors!

    Another wide angle batch..

    115mm f6.8 Gradnagon. This is a go-to wide angle for 5x7.

    125mm f8 Fujinon, it's a Fujinon. Smallish image circle for it's focal length & "modern design" about 280mm per Fuji and large for it's focal length -vs- aperture.

    165mm Angulon, one of my faves due to size and image quality. These are better in real world image making than most want to admit. Similar to the WA Dagor.. which has similar personality.

    I still think we're missing too many variables.
