    For 7x17 I use:

    600mm Fujinon C, f11.5, in Copal #3 shutter
    450mm Nikkor-M Sinar f9, in Copal #3 shutter
    300mm/12 inch Wide Angle Wray f6.3, barrel
    300mm/12 inch Gold Rim Dagor f6.8, in #4 Ilex shutter
    273mm/10 ¾ inch Wollensak f6.8, in Pi-Alphax shutter
    250mm/10 inch Kodak Wide Field Ektar f6.3, in #5 Ilex shutter
    I had a 210mm SSXL but felt it was too wide for my vision and sold it.

    My most commonly used lens is the 300mm Dagor.

    For 8x20:
    420mm Apo-Nikor
    600mm Apo Ronar

    I have tried the 14" Kodak Commercial Ektar, but it will NOT cover 8x20.

    If you like the 240mm on 4x10, the Nikkor 450mm M would be a great starting point for a 7x17/8x20 lens. It will cover with movements, is very sharp and contrasty, multicoated, in a modern shutter, takes commonly available 67mm filters and is very affordable.

    All of these will work (yet some require 135mm filters, a large lens board, and a camera with more than just average bellows):
    Grandagon 200 (7x17 only)
    Rodenstock 300W
    Rodenstock 300 Makro (closeup)
    355 G-Claron (Schneider)
    16" dagor in Ilex
    432mm de Golden Busch
    450 Fujinon
    450M Nikor
    550 Fine Art XXL
    600 Fujinon
    610 De Golden Busch
    750 Germinar (Doktor)
    30 inch RD Artar
    800T Nikor

    1000mm Germinar
    40 inch Artar
    1100mm Fine Art XXL
    1200T Nikor
    A few more:

    305mm Computar

    14" Goerz Trigor

    360 f5.6 Symmar in Compound or Ilex No. 5 shutter - late samples in Copal No. 3 shutters were labeled 355mm with a max. aperture of 6.8 (limited by the "smaller" shutter) - not this refers to the single coated convertible Symmar, not the newer Symmar-S

    The 360mm Rodenstock APO Gerogon covers 7x17. I've heard it also covers 8x20, but I haven't tried it.

    Ditto for the 360mm W.A. APO Nikkor. I know it covers 7x17, but don't have an 8x20 to try it on. Note, this is the W.A. APO Nikkor, which is pretty hard to find. It's much less common than the standard 360mm APO Nikkor (which definitely won't cover 7x17/8x20).

    In a longer lenses, the 760mm f14 APO Ronar Compact covers with ease, as does the 760mm f11 APO Nikkor.

    I use for my 8x20
    16.5" Goerz Apo-Artar
    19" Goerz Apo-Artar
    24" Goerz Apo-Artar
    30.5" Apo-Nikkor
    All covers this format without problems.
    The next will be a 305 or 355mm

    The 305mm G Claron covers 7x17 with a bit to spare. I haven't tried it on 8x20. It may just cover. It's reasonably small, light (Coapl No. 1 shutter) easy to find and inexpensive.

    The 305mm Computar will cover 8x20 with plenty to spare. Unfortunately, it's a lot harder to find and much more expensive then the 305mm G Claron (Quality Camera currently has one listed at $1995.00).

    If you move up to 355mm/14" the options become more plentiful. The 355mm G Claron covers 8x20 easily as does the 360mm/355mm Convertible Symmar. The latter is big and heavy, but is available in shutter (Compound or Ilex No. 5 for early samples, Copal No. 3 later).
