    Hey team, no one has mentioned the 300mm f9 M Nikkor. What a classic. I bought mine for $175 some years ago. Ja ja, forget what Nikon says about the coverage, it covers more. K

    The Wolly 1a is a triple convertable, not a double! My mistake----my brain just woke up!

    12" Commercial Ektar is a nice one. But before splurging on any one lens, decide what kind of photography you like doing - are you big into architecture or landscapes? then it might be better to start with something wider. If you are in to portraits, something longer, and if you're in to macro, or are not sure what you want to shoot, then a normal would be good.

    My favorite 8x10 lens is my 420mm Fuji L. Next is my 12" (300mm) Commercial Ektar. Or maybe the 210mm Fuji. Hmm. Have to think about that. Maybe I like the 210 Fuji the second best, and the Ektar third. Whatever. The 420mm Fujinon L is definately #1, though. The 210mm Fuji is #1 for my 4x5, logically.

    Alternatively, my first 8x10 lens set was a 240mm Caltar N (Rodenstock Sironar-N,) coupled with a 14" Red Dot Artar. That was a nice combination, too.
