    Looking for a wide angle for my 5x7, want to keep the cost down, so I'm not looking for a top grade shelf queen.


    Needs to have working shutter!

    You might look for a 90mm Super Angulon, very common in Europe and do sell for reasonable prices, the f5.6 version has slightly better coverage (2235mm image circle 105º) than the f8 (216mm image circle 100º) for 5x7. Make sure not to get the early f8 version in a Compur #00 unless you're prepared to live with the awkward little shutter.

    A bargain lens is a 90mm f/8 Ilex Calumet Wide Field Caltar (also sold as Ilex Acugon). I have the Ilex and the Schneider and prefer the Ilex on my 5x7.
