    Yup have the 12 and 14” G-Claron then up to the 19” Artar. Never felt the need for the 450 Nikkor

    A 270mm or 305mm G-Claron might be more your cup of tea, for a wide angle on 11x14.

    Because they're there. Both are big coverage modern lenses with modern coatings in modern shutters. I had both until last summer I (somewhat regrettably) sold my Nikkor M-450. But, like Jim F, I can use the 19" component of my Cooke XV instead. Choice between Nikkor and Cooke... Are you kidding???

    I expected this to cost abit, but I am in no immediate rush. I will also have to explain to my wife how this is not a bad idea and that will give me some time to save up. Im getting in touch with Keith to see how he organizes getting color film... If that becomes to much of a difficult (costly) to obtain I will not need a reducing back. Its an interesting offer Jim, and yep, shipping it will be a substantial part of a total cost. Maybe I will have to build my own as well ;-)
    Curious why you want to shoot 11x14 color. I have done it and concluded it’s overkill for my purposes. Do you mind sharing your goal? Color contact prints, or what?

    A 300mm Dagor works fine as a wide-angle on my 11x14 by f/32, as does my 305 G-Claron, as another poster has noted. The Fujinon 250mm/6.7 original W is claimed to have an 80 degree coverage and that "should" work if you don't need a lot of movement. These are typically not very expensive on Ebay.

    For longer focal lengths, the 19" and 23" cells of my B&L Protar VII set have adequate 11x14 coverage. The 12" +/- Protar VIIa combination of these two cells may be a bit tight on image circle for 11x14.

    Unless you are planning to scan and greatly enlarge an 11x14 negative rather than contact print, the optical demands upon the lens are not exceptionally high and, IMHO, can be met by quite a number of affordable older options. Good contrast will likely be more important than sheer resolution if contact printing or only printing to small enlargement ratios.

    Re: Starting with ULF

    I bought a Nikkor-W 360mm F6.5 with good shutter. It has more coverage than the 450 Nikkor.

    Yes it is big but so is everything ULF. The lens is the smallest bit

    I like Nikkor and newer shutters.

    Here on Ken Lee's website is the complete Nikkor brochere. http://www.kennethleegallery.com/pdf...rmatLenses.pdf

    Scroll down for coverage data.
