    Schneider Super Symmar 110mm XL? Should I get one?

    Hi all, Ive been looking for a lighter weight wide angle lens for 5x7 and the Schneider super Symmar 110mm XL seems to be the one getting the most use/recommendations. Is it really worth it? I have used a 115mm Grandagon in the past and I liked the performance but it was big and heavier than Id like to take along on backpacking trips.
    Anyone have one to sell me?
    Let me know your thoughts.

    Gosh, on 8x10 the Grandagon 115mm is tiny

    The 110mm SSXL is one of my all time favorite lenses. I've been using mine since they were first released. I shoot primarily 4x5, but have also used it on 4x10 where it performed very well with a center filter.

    Do a LFF search on 110mm f5.6 Symmar XL, Lots of post on this topic. Good modern wide angle lens, but it is not a miracle/magical lens.
