    I recently bought a Nikkor-W 300mm 5,6, and i would like to know your opinion about it.
    I´m using it on 8x10 and 4x5

    Thanks

    Should be good. I use a Nikon 120, 240, and the triple 600/800/1200 on my 8x10 rig. Can't complain.

    A fine lens with good coverage.
    Perhaps a bit bulky on 4x5 but that is up to you.

    I use the excellent 300mm f9 Nikkor M for 5x4 work. Very small and light (under 300g) mounted in a Copal 1 shutter.
