    165mm Goerz W.A. Dagor is a nice small lens that covers. So does the Zeiss 180mm dagor. Of course, if you sell your car, you can have a nice 150 or 210 Symmar XL.

    I just want to feel nostalgic like I used to.

    A 9-1/2" Dagor is a nice lens, in my experience with black and white. I am not sure what the coverage is, but I have not had any probem on 8x10. Mine is coated, and mounted in a reliable working Ilex shutter, which I had serviced. These lenses can be fitted to a modern Copal 1 shutter.

    The 10" Wide-Field Ektar has tons of coverage, but it's in a large Ilex #5 shutter and isn't quite as contrasty as a coated Dagor. On the other hand, I use the shutter for other barrel lenses with a front mounting adapter, so I can carry three lenses and one shutter, making up for the weight and bulk of the big shutter.

    My 8-1/4" Gold Dot Dagor mounted in an Ilex #3 covers with room for modest movements, so a 9-1/2" should be no problem, but I bet the coverage isn't quite as wide as the WF Ektar.

    I have an old 168mm Ser. III Dagor that covers when stopped down, but I've heard that later versions might not. That said, it's usually a very affordable lens in a Rapax non-sync shutter.

    My widest lens is a 120mm/f:14 Berthiot Perigraphe. These are usually found in barrel with wheel stops, and cover 8x10" with room for slight movements. I had mine mounted in an Ilex #3--coverage is slightly less, but I'll tolerate that for the convenience of a shutter. Very affordable, and it's a surprisingly sharp little lens!

    A schneider 210mm Angulon. Small, sharp and covers 11X14" with movements. Costs an arm and a leg, but I wouldn't give up mine for anything!

    Check the list from Michael Gudzinowicz. Or did you really mean new?

    He has posted charts for various formats. If you search the google news archives it's hidden in there. I never find it when I'm looking but I usually find something interesting-)

    Also in the costs an arm and leg departement, as well as big and heavy, but I'd never go anywhere with my 8x10 without my 165mm Super Angulon. It has tremendous coverage and is remarkably flare resistent for a single coated lens with many elements. More recent versions may be multi-coated, but it isn't essential. Other more recent designs like the new 150 are more compact, but even more expensive.

    Hey Carl, I feel your pain.

    I have the 121mm SA and it's just a big piece of glass. But interestingly enough, the "regular" 165mm Angulon (one of which I HAD) is about the size of a half dollar and cover 8X10" beautifully.
