    Possible to "back up" for the subject? Increasing the lens-camera distance could help with reducing the amount of rise needed.

    Possible to attach a sample image to get an idea of what ya trying to accomplish and how the lens limitation occurs?

    We have all, including the OP, forgotten what the OP asked about. Namely, and to wit:

    I can get a "super angulon 75/8" for a reasonable price. But I can't find much about them as the 65 and 90 seem to be more popular. Would be to be used on 4x5 with minimal or no movements. The old Schneider page said they are meant for 9x12 but that they have about 20/17mm shift when used with 4x5. Would be fine for my use. Can they be used without a center filter? No idea what shutter it is in.
    He has a 75/5.6 Fujinon SWD, wants something of the same focal length that's lighter.

    The lens he asked about (75/8) SA more than covers 4x5. So why are we going on about coverage?

    Coverage is only one consideration.

    Resolution, distortion, color, fall off are just as important.
