    Or why Schneider stopped the 165mm f8 Super Angulon not long after the 150mm f5.6 SSXL _ which is simply a better lens in every way.

    The 165mm f8 SA has been made for decades, initially single AR...

  17. Re: Wide Lenses for 4x5 & 8x10: 90mm to 165mm

    Image circle of 312mm is needed for 8x10, image circle of 305mm is a tad small.

  20. Re: Wide Lenses for 4x5 & 8x10: 90mm to 165mm

    IMO, very short list for ~150mm lens for 8x10 would be the 150mm f5.6 SSXL. They have now become pricy and in demand likely due to the current fashion of 8x10 sheet film.

    Color 4x5 sheet film typically cost $4-6 each sheet or about $55 per 10 sheet box, B&W film about half that cost.
    Add film processing cost, add print making cost, add print mounting-framing cost.
