This is my first post on LF forum and it's going to be a noobish one for sure. I've been out of the game with 4x5 for at least 4 years and even then I only used my old Korona Gundlach for a year and wasn't very good at it. I've been using my Nikon D80 exclusively and I'm sick of the lack of detail in my landscape shots. I was also considering buying a 12mm lens for it. But I finally decided to go with 4x5 again and have 1 camera and 1 lens that might last me a lifetime instead of having to upgrade every year with digital. I also really want to step up and become a better photographer and think about my images more than I can with the Digital.
So I bought a Wista DX off ebay for $350, it seemed to fit my style because it's small, light, and has more movements than my Korona. Right now the only 4x5 lens I have is the Schneider Xenar 135mm, But I've heard it allows for almost no movements because the coverage is so small. I always wanted to get the Schneider Super Angulon 90mm because thats what I always borrowed from my college. I'm basically looking for a nice landscape/architecture wide angle that will give me decent coverage with a good amount of movements. Also this is going to be a setup for field work and hiking so light weight and compact would be nice.
I'm limited to $300 max for the lens. I have an offer for a 90mm SA later model black for $277 shipped with lens board.Also found a kind of beat up Schneider Symmar S 150mm for $160. Would either of these be a good deal for or should I look at something different for the wista? Or just use my xenar 135mm?
Sorry this is such a long winded post but I've been pouring over threads and websites trying to find an answer to this.
