If I were just starting in 8X10, or was serious about paring down to a single lens (don't worry, I'm not) this would be a contender! Back in my Deardorff days I made many wonderful images with one of these. For architecture, the Deardorff bellows would groan and complain well before this lens would run out of movements. The Schneider spec is wrong. These cover sharply right to the edge at 82 degrees. That's about 410mm of image circle. Take it to the bank. This one is feather light in it's Copal 1 Press shutter. The press shutters fire each time you cycle the cable release. Top speed on these is 1/125th. Price: $385 + shipping 3% to APUG of course.
