    Hi All,

    I searched but found no reference to my question.

    Has anyone really pushed this lens to its real-world limits regarding film coverage? I'm trying to keep the weight/bulk/expense of my system down and can live with just a bit of image degradation on the corners but not much. I want the quality to be good enough for very high quality 24x60 inch prints.

    This is for 4x10 landscapes and I won't need much lens displacement. The diagonal of the film is 255mm and the "rated" spec of this lens is 233mm. I can get a used 150mm SS XL but I'd rather not spend that much cash if I can avoid it.

    Thanks In Advance!!
