    Dan, I’ve had my 90/5.6 SA just about stood on edge, right at the limit of tilt/swing, on enough occasions to appreciate that extra 20 mm of coverage. It’s just too tempting to me to use the short...
  4. Re: new member intro, and, lens purchase dilemna...

    You’d rather have the faster lens anyway. 90mm is rather wide on 4x5 and the faster design has enough more coverage to make you glad you sprung for it. Same for the f/5.6 Schneider Super Angulon.

    Re: how large (or small) are your prints?

    I print for the wall at nominal 16x20, the biggest print I could ever make, either in the darkroom or on my desktop. Going larger than that requires an order of magnitude more money.
