    Just remember that the bellows factor is a function of reproduction ratio, not focal length. So taking a picture of the same subject at the same size on the film with a 150mm, a 210mm and a 300mm gives exactly the same bellows factor.

    Apart from that, all reasonably modern lenses by any of the four main lens makers are excellent.

    Thank you,
    as Ole said, if you get up close and personal you are going to have bellows extention compensation no matter what lens you use.

    As far as the nikkor is concerned, its a modern plasmat, so its sure to be sharp and have adequate coverage.
    I doubt you could tell the difference from any other similar lens, or most any other lenses designed for general LF photography. What more could you want?

    Tanks for all the tips

    So I got the lens a couple of days ago, did not have a chance to really test it beyond a few shots. So far I'm happy with the way it performs. Here are some links to the first images shot with it.

    Good morning, Larkis;

    The NIKKOR 5.6/210mm lens is working for you. Nicely done. And you obviously have a remarkably tolerant Dad.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."
