    Nikkor-SW 120mm f/8 is truly a gem and a real sleeper lens, selling for much cheaper than you'd expect for such a useful optic for the multi-format crowd. Usually less than a 58mm XL for 4x5, despite giving similar FOV on 8x10, and of course a great 4x5 and 5x7 lens with plenty of room for movements...

    I think partly this is from a few people here on the forum that insisted it didn't cover 8x10. I won't speak ill of the dead though.

    Was in disagreement with another photographer who told me that the diagonal of an 8x10 negative from one corner of the film to the opposite corner is 329mm. The listed coverage of the 120mm he'd seen listed to be 308mm and 312mm so "obviously didn't cover a full 8x10 sheet of film". He did not own or use the lens. On this end I am an owner and user of the optic and love the images it throws on an 8x10.

    Re: Wide angle lenses for 8x10

    I've seen some say 325mm for 8x10. Exact pixel measurements via Photoshop of a scanned, dry 8x10 sheet gives me 319mm from end to end and 312.5mm for image area. I usually say 312mm for 8x10 coverage - and I think it's telling Nikon uses that in their literature. I don't know why folks have argued it, though of course movement is limited / nonexistent.

    And actually Nikon specifies 8x10 coverage in this brochure on the 120SW:

    Re: Wide angle lenses for 8x10

    If I need movements I also have a Nikon 360mm W

    or 11X14

    A very fine shutter and lens with a lot of coverage

    Another here to say that the 120mm f/8 is definitely the best choice for an ultra wide like this on 8x10.
