    152 mm straight on with no movements. That's the minimum circle covered. If you want to use movements, you'll need a lens with more coverage.

    I tend to use the diagonal of the film itself, which for 4x5 is 163mm.

    That provides some insurance because the image quality close to the
    edge of the lens' image circle may not be up to expectations.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.
