The 450mm Nikkor M is a great lens for 12X20. I would not waste my money on any other lens of this focual length, unless you want to try out one of the huge plasmat type (Symmar, Symmar-S, Nikkor-W, Fujinon-W). You would get great coverage with them, and a brighter ground glass to. But they are really large.

as always, very helpful Sandy.

In doing some research tonite it seems like the spot on perfect lens is the 450mm Nikkor M. So I think I may take your advice (and similiar advice from others) and save up for the Nikkor M. The 355mm G Claron really seems to cover well stopped down so Ill just stick with it for now.

thanks to others for the help/advice and well wishes.

Hopefully soon Ill have some film to burn and some HUGE paper to coat to make some pd prints.
