    My favorites are the widest ones I own--a 190mm and 240mm.

    21cm f6.8 Schneider Angulon. It's just the thing.

    I cannot say this is a favorite because I have it but have not used it.
    Mentioned for our constituents who might know the lens.

    Wollensak Velostigmat Wide Angle Ser. III f9.5 8x10 6 1/4” (158.75mm) Focus No.286510

    It has been in a storage box in a universal iris mount on a 5.9 x 5.9" Deardorff board.

    200mm f/6.5 TAYLOR-HOBSON WIDE ANGLE ANASTIGMAT in a modern Copal.
    Covers 11x14" with room to spare when stopped down, so I can tilt the front standard pretty much as much as I want to.

    How do you see WIDE?
    I can't see very wide, that is photographically, so I backed off.
    As they say YMMV. My favorite probly would not be yours

    A second vote for my Wollensak Velostigmat Wide Angle Ser. III f9.5 8x10 6 1/4” Focus . I have two, one of which I front mounted on an old Betax shutter.

    The widest I have used consisently with success is a 210mm Graphic Raptor (barrel). Nice light little thing.

    If I do not mind dark soft corners, my Wollie 6 1/4"/12.5 works well enough.

    First is with the 210mm, the second with the 6 1/4". Platinum prints.
