Just starting out in LF. Have a Chamonix 045n-1 on order and now looking around for lenses. I want a 90mm lens for landscapes. Not too expensive, not too heavy but, as this will be my main lens I'd prefer to invest in a keeper rather than a 'just make do' lens.
As most of my work will be landscapes at f/22 or abouts I don't need a super fast lens. This has lead me to 6.8 as a good compromise between potentially hard to focus f/8's and heavy f/5.6's or 4.5's (comments on this welcome - am I being paranoid about focusing f/8's ?).
Looking around I see the 2 best contenders in this space as the Rodenstock Grandagon-N 90/6.8 or Schneider Super-Angulon Classic 90mm/6.8. Would appreciate any insight into these two lenses and how they compare to each other. Is the Schneider worth the extra dollars?
