    I suspect the answer to the OP's question is that there's no standard, you just have to ask each vendor what their policy is.

    Photo-Flo by itself is not a stabilizer. You need to add formalin if you want the dye image of an E-6 film to be stabilized. C-41 films are now different.

    Re: Good light lens for 8x10

    When I want to go ultra-light with 8x10 I take the 270mm G-Claron.

    Another option not yet mentioned is the 300mm Rodenstock Geronar.

    Re: 11x14" vs. 7x17"

    FWIW, the catalog spec for the 7x17 Korona is 10 lb / ~4.5 kg. Up to you whether that's enough of a difference to matter for your purposes.
