    I'd really like a 450 or a 500T when I can afford to buy a camera that has enough bellows extension to use one.

    For 4x5, 58mm and up to 300mm. One more if I had the bellows. 5 total.

    Re: Landscape Lens

    Like many others, I use all of the above, depending on the objective for the individual image.

    A more telling question would be which focal lengths are used most often.

    For me, that would be 110mm (~40%) and 240mm (~30%) on 4x5.

    Re: Landscape Lens

    While I would normally use my 160mm Turner-Reich triple convertible at 160mm, I occasionally could be seen with lenses anywhere from 65mm to 375mm on the front of the Cambo for different shots.
