    In 4x5, what is your most used lens?

    Which lens stays on your 4x5 camera the most? Or which two lenses do you use the most?

    A couple of weeks ago I couldn't find my 150/4.5 Apo-Lanthar. when I had finally decided I could use a 150/4.5 Xenar instead, I opened the camera to find the Lanthar already there...

    After that, it's about even between 90/6.8 Angulon, 210/6.1 Xenar, and 72/5.6 Super-Angulon XL. It all depends on what I'm after; I have a 420mm that sees some use too!

    Usually a Ysarex 127/4.7 robbed from a Polaroid 110a, lately a Centar 5x7 (Aplanat)mounted in a Betax #2 shutter. I also have an Ilex 4.7/10" Portronic Paragon in barrel that is tack sharp that I use for portraits.

    I use my 135mm f/9 Repro-Claron in a #00 shutter quite a bit. It barely covers 4x5 at infinity but most of my shots are usually closer than that so it works very well. It must be the lightest 135mm lens in a shutter you can get.
