    Fujinon 105mm / F5.6 CM-W - question

    Hi everyone;

    I currently have two 90mm lenses. My big 90mm Komura I use on my monorail for any and all archeitechual (sp?). The circle on it actually covers 5x7 with movements, so I am pretty happy with it.

    For backpacking, on my old Super Speed Graphic, i use a Lindholf Angulon, 90mm. Great little lens. The only complaint I have, is on my camera, the point of focus is right against the body of the camera, so I have little to no room for movement.

    When hiking, 90% of my shots are either on a 135mm or a 180mm (both Sironars). 99% HP5+ or Tri-X. Sometimes I want something a bit wider than the 135mm, but a bit more movement than my 90mm Angulon.

    The Fujinon 105mm CM-W specs looks like it would work for me. Like I siad, for buildings, I have another 90mm already, I want something smallish, and it doesn't have be as wide a 90mm.

    Anybody out there ever use this lens? Anythoughts? Or anything else somebody might reccomend in this size/range to replace my Angulon?

    Do you really need to be packing two lenses that are so close? You won't have all that much room for movement with the 105mm CM-W before you run out of image circle anyway, and I imagine that the look of the lens isn't all that different than your 90.

    That being said, I use a 135mm CM-W which I like a lot. It is very sharp and has excellent coatings.

    I replaced the 90mm Angulon in my hiking kit with a 100mm WF Ektar and am very pleased with it.
