    Portrait lens suggestion for Linhof Master Technika

    Hi guys

    I'd really appreciate your advice on portrait lens suggestions for a 4x5 MT that is reasonably "sized" (I don't want something too bulky!) and also reasonably priced

    Thanks a lot!

    Then we would need to know what kind of portraits, head and shoulders? 2/3rds? full length? Outdoor environmental?

    And so on.....

    I have been using a 250mm Imagon on my Master for years untill I silly sold the Master.
    I am using the Imagon on the Sinar P2 now.

    The Imagon will fitt: you need the extensionring between the Technika lensboard and the shutter, than it fits well.

    Since bulk is a concern, you want to find out specifically that the lens you ultimately pick fits inside a folded-up Master Technika or whether you'll have to carry it separately and mount the board each time you set up.

    I'd be looking for a 210mm - 240mm f:4.5 Tessar or Heliar in a Compound #3 or Copal #3. A 250mm Wollensak Veritar (may need to be custom mounted to clear the light trap), or a 250mm Fuji soft focus.

    Other options would be the 8-1/4" or 10" Commercial Ektar.

    Cheers, Steve
