    I use this lens and enjoy it. What do you mean by inherent? It is an f/8 lens, which is slower than many.

    I use the Schneider 4 filter with 77–>82mm step up ring.

    I bought it back in the 90's specifically because it just covers 8x10 for extreme wide angle. Yes, it is a little dark, and especially hard to see the corners, due to distortion. On a bright, sunny day, it's fine. For 4x5, no issues. It's a nice, sharp lens.

    Heliopan made a 77 mm center filter that works perfectly with Nikkor SW 120/8. From time to time appears one in the auction site. For 4x5 you can live without center filter, the lens has an enormous IC.
