    I use a Nikkor 120 (f/8 I believe) Which gives me about a 20mm on 35mm film type prespective. Small and sharp.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    A great lens on a Deardorff. Also a 150, fantastic. But the 150 is not so small.
    The 210 W is pretty useful, too.

    Perhaps a Nikon 120mm SW?

    Mmmmh I've never seen so many WA Protars on Ebay

    I'm almost tempted to get another.

    Look for a Hypergon 80mm with fan (or even up through 135/150mm) for extreme wide angle on 8x10.

    Wisner made a 80mm version without fan...

    all are extremely small lenses....

    A "fan" Don? I don't believe I know what that is.

    The early hypergons had an air actuated fan that swung in over the lens to even the exposure
    take a look at http://www.phsc.ca/hypergon.html

    Its been over a decade since I sold my version of the 80mm with fan.

    Wisner built 85mm version without the fan.

    Has anyone actually seen a Wisner Hypergon?

    Keep your 165mm Super Angulon. It's big, it's heavy, but you have it. The only comparable lens that is modern and comes in a shutter is the 150 SSXL, which is smaller but not so much smaller that it's worth trading up to.

    Another 8x10 wide angle that is worth looking for is the Cooke 158/6.5 VIIb most are in barrel but can be had in a #1 shutter. A bit rare but excelent small lens.
