My next lens is going to be a wide angle one. Should I go with a Schneider Super Angulon 90mm f 8.0 Lens or Rodenstock Geronar-WA 90mm f8.0 lens. I have an Omegaview 45E with a 6x6 roll back and a 6 x 7 roll back. But I plan to use 4 x 5 film the most.

If I remember correctly, when I owned an f8 Rodenstock 90 Geronar-WA, a long time ago, it was mounted in a Copal 1 shutter. However, it required an opening in the lens board for a Copal 3 shutter - 65mm.

I'd go for the Schneider.

BTW, there is a pristine Toyo/Omega 45E, with many accessories, sitting in my closet in a Calumet monorail carrying case.

No longer use it, but can't bring myself to part with it. Dollar for dollar, ounce for ounce, it's a great camera.

Thanks I will look for a good from KEH ( or WTH E-bay ). I think the way that camera looks grows on you! Hard to think about parting with it.
