    210mm lens for 8x10?

    I have always scratched my head when looking at lens charts. I read that the angle of coverage for an 8x10 is 350 on one place, and 420 on another place. All I know is my 210 caltar iin does not but I really like the perspective it gives. All I have now for my 8x10 is a 300mm and want something wider.

    Is there a list somewhere, that people trust, which might give me my options?

    Or maybe someone has a 210 that covers 8x10 that they really like and could recommend?

    210 Apo Sironar W more then covers 810 with movements, the 210 Apo Sironar S is much smaller and fully covers but won’t allow much movement.

    210mm Fujinon W f/5.6 Fuji says covers 352mm at f/22, I agree, if not more
    210mm G-Claron Schneider says covers 260mm at f/22, mine covers a lot more than that, 8x10 with some movements
    210mm f/5.6 Nikkor W Nikkor says 295mm at f/22, mine covers 8x10 but just barely
    Personally acquired my 8x10 lenses with 5-10 day trial periods, then went and shot with them on my 11x14 usually at f/45.

    Forgot to mention a 200mm f/6.5 TAYLOR-HOBSON Cooke Series VIIB WIDE ANGLE ANASTIGMAT. Not a physically large lens, but it covers 11x14 at f/64 with some movements possible. Mine is in a Copal #3. It's f/6.5 aperture is for focusing only, f/11 is really the largest aperture to shoot with.

    My older Convertible Symmar 210/370 covers, although I haven’t pushed the movements. I also use a 240 G Claron that covers with limited movements.

    You could start by understanding the terminology and knowing that 350 and 420 aren't "angles of coverage". 420 degree angle equals a full turn and a quarter. That's wide and then some.
    Thanks, but I'd rather just watch:

    My Konica Hexanon GRII 210mm covers also with ease, but has no shutter but I use it in front of the Sinar shutter!

    My 210mm for 8x10 has been a Wolly Graphic Raptar Wide Field lens (f/6.8). Tons of movement on 8x10. Small. A barrel lens that some folks have mounted in shutters.

    Kowa Graphic or identical Computar 210/9 in Copal 3s shutter. Scarce and pricey.
