    Schneider 210mm f/8 Super-Angulon.

    I am considering buying a 210mm Super-Angulon lens as a future investment for use with an 8x10 Camera.
    Does anyone own one of these lenses? What lenses from other manufacturers are of a similar specification?

    Didn't Rodenstock make a 210 Grandagon? Another option would be the super symmar aspheric XL.

    You could go for a 240mm Symmar or Sironar instead, they cover 10x8 and are excellent studio/portrait lenses for 5x4, and a lot ligther than a 210 SA.

    I will check out the 210mm Grandagon. The Super-Symmar XL looks a superb lens, but beyond my budget, so I am looking at what is available second-hand. Is there anything similar from Fuji and Nikon as well?

    Will these allow for some perspective control movements with 8x10?

    The Symmar doesn't allow much movements, and is more of a "straight on" kind of lens.

    If you want a WA lens for 8x10" that offers lots of movements and can be carried more than 20 meters, you might consider a "plain" Angulon 210mm f:6.8 instead of the über-massive Super Angulon?

    A little, probably not a lot, but then a 165mm f8 SA would be a far better WA on a 10x8 if you can carry it, mines very heavy. Depends what you are planning to shoot.

    The older style Fujinon-W, 210 f5.6 -- the ones with the lens data marked on the front element retaining ring -- more than covers 10x8 and has room for reasonable movements. They show up on the bay pretty often.

    I love mine.

    There is no Grandagon 210mm it is a 200mm for the Grandagon or 155mm for the wider one which I can really recomand!

    I looked on the `Robert White` website and there is a Fuji 250mm f/6.3 CM W lens which has an image circle diameter of 320mm when the lens is stopped down to f/22. This takes a 67mm size filter thread.
    Is this lens suitable as a moderate `wide` general use lens on 8x10?
    What is the specification of the 210mm that you have mentioned?
    I am considering a `moderate` wide lens for 8x10 of around the 200-250mm range.
