    Now looking at a Nikkor 135mm f5.6 W lens. Should be good I think.

    An excellent choice, Sir (as the waiter says).

    I have one of these, too. Image circle is 156 mm (just big enough for 4x5") at FULL APERTURE, 200 mm at F22. I really like the semi-wide angle of this lens but without the coverage penalty of other 135 lenses.

    Regards,

    David

    This is a lens that I carry. I bought it new and like it a lot.

    This photo was made with that lens.

    Great choice!

    I just got one last week, but haven't done anything but look at the GG image. It seems roughly equivalent in sharpness to the Xenar 135/4.7, but has better coverage and the lens coating is much more effective.

    I think I saw somewhere that the image circle was 200mm, not 156.

    Oh...and one more nice thing about this lens is that it's fairly light and takes 52mm filters. The filter size was a bonus for me since I have several of that diameter. The Xenar takes 40.5mm filters.

    Just to be clear - the image circle is 156 mm AT FULL APERTURE (f5.6), 200 mm at f22.

    I have one of these too ( I really like the 135mm length on 4x5). Great lens. Incredibly sharp and contrasty...and it'll have the modern shutter speed sequence.
