Bought earlier this year a 5x7 Super Technika IV, it has now new bellows and it's a great camera, even if it is uneasy with the 110 and 90mm... and has no front tilt. Well, I had an Apo-Symmar 150 and that lens with it's 72 degrees coverage and 220mm image circle proved a little tight, not much room for shift, I had some black corners. I had not much hopes for a replacement, as all the SW and Super things in that focal are considerably larger and heavier... and are expensive. But I came across a lens I had never heard about on Ebay: a 150mm Apo Sironar "W" for wide. This one wasn't marked W as it is a pre-N and S version. The good thing with that lens is that it has a huge 80 degree and 250mm coverage, 3 more cm of rise than the Apo-Symmar (the new Apo-Symmar L has only 75 degrees like the Apo-Sironar S and 231mm of circle) without being one of those large and heavy lenses. It is in Copal #1 with the front rim about the size of the Copal, and is quite small, half the size and weight of the Super-Symmar with practically the same coverage. It wasn't cheap, but like new so I pressed the buy it now button. The seller has let me know that Rodenstock dropped it because the demand was not high enough. What a shame. Anyone use this lens? What did it cost at the time it was in production?
