    Re: 300mm lens 4x5" landscape

    Most ligtweight 300mm lenses have been listed already, but here is my take:

    1. "Regular" taking lenses:

    Nikon Nikkor-M
    Fuji Fujinon-C

    2. Process lenses that work just fine at infinity and...

    Re: Fake Schneider lens?

    Thank you, Eric. Btw, Rollei RPX 25 is made by Harman/Ilford. When I checked out the roll film version I was hoping for a successor to Agfa APX25, but no such luck😞.

    Re: 90mm 4x5 lens advice needed

    Re: Enlarging lens image circle

    Which one? Componon, Componon-S, others? Schneiders MTF curves for the 300mm Componon-S are for an image circle of 364.5mm. Of course the usable image circle depends on your print size.
