    dg, Stick with the 90mm as long as you're happy with the results, why change. The 100 apo-symmar is an excellent lens for medium format but the 90 will offer much greater movements, although I've never used one they are a very popular choice for a "wide" lens. Regards P

    While I think the 100mm apo-symmar is sharper, I've used the 90mm f5.6 S.A. for 6x9 and have been pleased with the results. I thought they were quite sharp, although I didn't enlarge above 8x10.

    For me, the issue isn't performance so much as it's weight. The 90mm is a pretty good sized lens for 6x9.
