  1. Re: pros/cons of two different lenses at the same focal length?

    It would be close!
    Or look for a convertible lens. IIRC there was a convertible Symmar that...

    Re: Hi from Ireland

    Welcome aboard!
    With an optional back you can shoot 4x5, and with splitters two 7x2-1/2 or 5x3-1/2 on a single sheet, so there's a lot of flexibility. Also 5x7 is a nice size for contact printing.
