Three months ago I bought an Horseman FA, Nikor 105 W, and a 6 x 7 Calumet roll film back. (My current enlarger can only handle up to 6x9.) I plan to buy a use d 4x5 enlarger later and make the rest of the step to full 4x5 use. I do enjoy t he convenience of roll film also. Now I'm looking into other lenses for my cam era that will work with 4x5 and 6x7/9. I understand that lenses are format spec ific. I recently found out that the FA can only except lenses with a max rear le ns outside bezel diameter of 63mm. I'm looking to cover my bases and buy lenses that will work with the above mentioned formats. I'm interested in landscape, old buildings ect. In 35mm format I mostly shoot 24, 28, and 35mm, and some sho rt telephoto.
What lenses should I consider specificly for my camera, formats, and subjects? Will a lens that is mildly wide for 6x7 be very wide for 4x5? And will it give m e coverage with the cameras tilts/ swings? Of course I also am on a limited budget. (like the rest of the world.) And searc h ebay daily for deals, but I feel like I don't know enough. Also is there anyon e out there that could tell me anything else about the FA that may be helpful?
I've read this site alot and the one thing I've learned is that there is alot o f knowledge here. and I have learned a lot about large format and for that I tha nk you!
