    Wide-angle lens for 11x14??

    Looking for advice for "wide-angle" lenses suitable for use on 11x14 camera. Older, more economical choices preferred. Wider than 300mm.

    This thread on lenses for 7x17 has 95 posts including several lists ranging from budget to very high. Any lens listed will give you lots of movement.

    Good luck,

    I have a few choices here. Some only barely cover you might want to check up on these but if memory serves me here is what i can add:

    Rodnestock Apo Gerogon-S f11 270mm (just covers no moves)
    Rodenstock Apo Graphigon f11 240mm (just covers no moves)
    Wollensak Series IIIa f12.5 EX WA 10x12 200mm (covers w/ small stops)
    Emil Busch Wide Angle Aplanat no 3 series C 190mm (very small stops maybe)
    Orion 3a 200mm russian metrogon type thing (just covers)

    if you can find the above they will run less than the modern options and the protars iv and v.

    210mm f:6.8 Schneider Angulon. Slightly soft in the corners on 12x16", really intended for 24x30cm (9.5x12"), but is quite usable. Mine is a pre-WWII uncoated version - and it does make a little bit of difference.

    Yeah, try and find one of those or a 270mm Computar for sale, especially "more economical choices preferred."

    270mm f/7.7 Dagor covers 11x14, but it is not easy to find.

    The Hexanon GRII 260mm is a good economical choice as well I forgot about that one. It would cover 11x14 with not alot of movements.

    If you really need more economical choices there are a large number of 300mm lenses that easily cover 11x14 with movements. Once you get under 300mm and want movements you get into more pricey lenses for the most part.
