    Cooke XVa with 5x7

    Would a Cooke XVa be a good choice for a 5x7 for mainly landscape photography? I will be using a 150mm Schneider Super-Symnar HM also.

    Great lens, great look, easily covers 5x7.

    Is it too big for the size of the cameras?

    It is in Copal #3 shutter so it isn't small but I've used mine on 4x5 as well. It is probably one of the most unique and beautiful lenses I've ever used. There isn't anything like them.
