    I wonder if new users can't view the classifieds. I thought it was only a probationary period to post.

    You have to be a member for at least 30 days to view the classifieds section.

    I ended up buying a Sinar Sinaron S 210mm f5.6 lens. I've been reading a lot about how to use the Shen Hao camera but one question I have is when mounting the 210 lens onto the camera, how far do I pull out the bottom? I've seen people pull the bottom of the camera out depending on the length of the lens. Is there a certain formula for this or do you just have to pull it out based on how much is in focus? Thanks.

    Re: Advice on 1st lens for LF (new member here)

    I figured I would jump on this thread, rather than start a new one so I hope that's ok. While I wait "patiently" for my Intrepid 4x5 i have been doing my research on lenses. I plan on doing some landscape stuff along with some portraits.
    I didn't want a one size fits all lens, but rather 2 unique lenses best-suited to landscapes & portraits. Money, unfortunately, is an object so I plan on buying only 1 at a time. Based on what I have read I am leaning toward a 90mm and a 210mm, sub F8.
    I've been looking at both Nikkor and Fujinon, but I'm not locked on those if anyone can offer another suggestion.
    Am I going down the right path here or have I done the wrong research? ANY and ALL help is very much appreciated. I am new to LF, so I'm looking for good beginner lenses that will work well for me as a improve my skills over time. THANKS!
