For copy work of 2 dimensional objects, for 3 dimensional macro or for general photography?

I would consider the Rodenstock Sironar S 150mm f/5.6. I use it for everything. I know its suppose to shot at infinity but close up it does work. Its a modern compact lens that has a lot of coverage. A limiting factor with lenses is not their converage but the size of your bellows. Arca Swiss and Sinar has really large bellows and that helps get the most coverage out of a lens. You can do extreme movements and the bellows will not vignette. You are only going to buy a normal LF lens once. If you get the best lens the first time. If you shoot 6x9 the Sironar has enough resolution for 6x9. You should consider the digital lenses from Schneider and Rodenstock for roll film.
