  5. Re: Choosing a film camera for the future... (35mm vs 4x5!)

    If you can swing it, I'd get both if the price is right. That way, you can try both for an extended period of time and either keep both, or get rid of the one you don't like.

    Good Luck!

    Re: ULF - 11x14 - Focal Length Lineup

    I'd get a long Artar as a second lens. Either a 19" or 24" depending on coverage. Don't know of many 10" lenses that will cover 11x14 with movements. L

    Re: Which lens would you choose?

    For what format? For 4x5 I'd find a 9 1/2" Dagor or get the 10 3/4" Artar, though its movements will be more limited than with the Dagor. Both of these lenses fit in a Copal1; the shutter is more...
