    I've been shooting a lot of 8x10 wet plate but my longest lens is a 300mm which really isn't cutting it for a lot of landscape stuff where I'd prefer to get in tighter. I'm on a complete paupers budget since I'm spending six months traveling around the country working on a photo book but if someone has a long bit of glass they're interested in lending, selling or possibly trading for other gear please get in touch. I'd like at least 600mm. Aperture doesn't matter.

    Thanks!

    I wouldn't have had to step in cow shit to get this shot if I had a longer lens :wink:

    Consider the Wollaston Meniscus lenses made by Reinhold of APUG. They are very cheap and gives very nice images.

    He recently posted here about a 1000mm f.13,7, but theres an array of other lenses, and as far as i know these are <100$ shipping included. He also mounts on boards and has different shutters he can provide.

    Found a 21inch f/10 Eastman Anastigmat that should do nicely.
