    180mm symmar-s on 8*10?

    Had anybody ever tried this combo?
    I know the lens is meant for 5*7, but when stopped down,
    does it cover 8*10 inch?

    Any help would be very much appreciated!

    regards

    Even the 210mm Symmar-S is being pushed to cover 8x10.

    The Symmar-S 180mm has an image circle of 252mm at f/22. For 8x10" one needs an image circle of 312mm at least.

    It will not cover, but image circle specs are often conservative. As Gene mentioned the 210mm Symmar-S will cover 8x10, but Schneider says it only has a image circle of 294mm at f22, go figure.
