    Oh Mike, I didn't know you had three. I have the Xenar in my watchlist, and have for quite some time. Were the others lenses with some flaws? I think I'm going to have to go back and find all your listings and have a look/see.

    Yeah, I'm pricing everything really low. I need to pay some bills and I really want to find a 4x10 or 5x12 that I can afford. I just remembered that the Schneider website has vintage lens data.

    Here's the 135mm f/4.7 Xenar... http://www.schneideroptics.com/info/...4,7-135mm.html

    90 F8 GERONAR-WA has a flange flocal distance less than some others , but it is still only gets you a centimeter or so advantage.
    I'd go with a small 135mm and be happy

    Perry, I just measured the infinity focal distance from the flange seat (back of the shutter). Schneider's specs are right on.

    By the way Perry, can you invert your front standard? On some camera designs that works.

    Which Schneider 90mm lens do you have? I think you get a little more flange-film distance with the 90/8 Super-Angulon than with the 90/6.8 Angulon. The more modern fast ultrawide designs from Schneider and Rodenstock (90/4.5) are slightly retrofocus, so they give even more room, but they are very expensive.

    Given the limitations of the Korona (no bag bellows, no recessed board), a 135 would be a good choice. There is no "one size fits all" camera. Each has its limitations. If you want a very short focal length lens, it is very unlikely it will be useable on that camera.

    On the other hand, if it really is a 5x7 camera, you might want to think along those lines too for a bit of versatility. A 135mm on a 5x7 camera is a fairly short lens. Also, 5x7 negs make beautiful contact prints.

    Great, but.. what was the distance measurement?
