    I know the RR lenses deliver a wonderful landscape image when stopped down but which of these is recommended for 11x14's (not just FL but maker).

    Are there any other more historic lenses you would recommend apart from the modern equivalents?

    In Dr. Peter Emerson's book (ca. 1888) he would reccomend a Dallmeyer RR of 24-25 inches on 11X14. You might find it easier to find a Baush & Lomb RR, and a shorter FL. Like 20 inch.
