    Schneider Angulon 90mm F/6.8 Lens in Linhof Synchro Compur Shutter

    Looking at the above lens and wondering about the shutter. I did a bit of digging and saw that the Linhof Shutter is bigger than the regular Synchro Compur shutter. I just want to be certain that this combo will work on my Pacemaker Speed Graphic 4x5 and what size opening in the lens board is required.

    And while I'm at it, any feedback positive or negative on the Angulon 90/6.8.

    Thanks.

    Basically the 90 Angulon does not fully cover 45 at infinity at any aperture. There are better choices, especially if you expect to use movements.

    Do you have knowledge as to why the current Angulon coverage documentation shifts from 81 degrees to 85 degrees as you move up from 90mm to 210mm?

    Nevertheless, the 90/8 Angulon was regularly supplied for use on Graphics, and used successfully. Coverage is indeed minimal on 4x5, but then a Speed doesn't have much movement capability anyway.
    A search here will provide lots of opinions about the Angulon's usability... I wouldn't want to shoot architecture or interiors (not for clients anyway) with one but I'll say that for landscape work it should serve nicely.
    Pepe- the 90/8 Schneider Super-Angulon succeeded the plain 6.8 Angulon and has much greater coverage... perhaps out to 5x7. A fine lens whenever manufactured, from 1956(?) on.

    Yes, so does the Rodenstock 90mm 6.8 Grandagon N.

    For less money the Rodagon Geronar WA also more then covers 45.

    90mm Angulon covers 4x5 fine.
    Whether or not it gives you excellent performance in the far corners...well no not in my experience with a couple copies and similar lenses of the Angulon design.

    It's small and lightweight though and great for backpacking. If you need higher performance get something else.

    As per your query it'll work on your Graphic with either shutter.

    You might try the Graflex Optar 90mm if you want something that matches your camera.

    Thatís why it is rated for 912 rather then 45.
