    The Rodenstock Sironar N 210 (or equivalent Caltar II N) definitely covers 5x7 with plenty of movements. Remember that all 210 plasmats have coverage that approaches or in some cases exceeds 8x10.

    The published image circle for the Sironar N 210 is 286 mm. You need 210 for 5x7. I have the Caltar version and it is a great lens. Most used modern Plasmats in 210 should be available for $ 250-300 at least on this side of the Atlantic.

    Sincerely,

    Hany.

    Good to know - the different models (Sironar, Sironar-N, -S and Apo Sironar) can be confusing sometimes. I found this compiled list right now, http://home.earthlink.net/~eahoo/page8/lenses.html which provides a lot of data on various lenses.

    I was in the same boat as you, looking for affordable lenses to mount on my
    5x7 Agfa Anscos for students use. I think it was Jim Galli who recommended I look for 8-1/2" Ilexs and I was able to buy two of them (One of them an Ilex, the other an Ilex built Caltar---both single coated) on ebay almost in mint condition in Acme shutters for under $90 apiece. These are fine lenses for a 5x7 with a good amount of wiggle room for swings, tilts, rise etc.... (however the shutters did need cla--for the price I got them for I'm not complaining) I'd suggest at least considering these lenses if you're on a tight budget.

    Have you considered renting out breeding pairs?

    Their progeny are usually coat hangers.
