    Rodenstock Sironar-N 240mm F5.6 MC

    Hi, I'm looking at a Rodenstock Sironar-N 240mm F5.6 MC on eBay, does anyone know if this lens covers the 10x8 format?

    It does, with an image circle of 350mm.

    See the chart from the front page of this site:

    Yes, it does. I had one for my 8x10 outfit for awhile. I liked it. At the time I sold it, I had decided to put the 8x10 aside for awhile and was putting together a Hasselblad outfit. So, the second lens for the 8x10 had to go.

    I have never used a lot of movements (usually a little bit of rise and maybe a little shift to fine tune the composition) so I can only say that it covered what I did. 300mm circle is pretty much the minimum for 8x10 so, with 350mm, the Rodenstock 240 should have enough coverage for many situations.
