    Nikkor SW 90/4.5
    Schneider-Kreuznach Super Angulon 90/8

    And take a look at Rodagon 90 and Fuji as well
    Everyone will have their favourite but all of them produce good results

    Nikon 90mm f8 - same coverage as the 4.5 version (will cover 5x7) but much smaller, uses smaller filters and only slightly darker image on screen.

    Rodenstock 90mm f6.8 Grandagon's are another excellent lens or the faster f4.5 version, good coverage.

    The 90mm 5.6 Caltar HR (Topcon) is a bit rare, but it does the job. Any of the 5.6 or faster lenses are going to be big. The Caltar HR uses 77mm filters.
    I feel, therefore I photograph.

    so far I'm getting terrific results from my Fujinon-SW 90/f8.

    small(ish) lens, but in lower light, a 4.5 would be nice for a brighter ground glass.

    I used a 90mm 6.8 APO Grandagon at school, and it was a terrific performer. If you shoot color films, you'll probably want to get a multicoated lens.

    a friend has a Super Angulon 5.6/90, and he's shot ALL his interiors over the past 15 years on it(along with other lenses of course). But its his mainstay lens 75% of the time for interiors/exteriors.

    a chrome barrel super angulon

    to give you an idea about image circle, the super angulon will cover a 5x7 sheet of film when stopped down ...

    you might also think about a 65mm sa, if you are photographing tight spaces.
    (and if you get one make sure you get the center filter, very expensive but worth every penny! )
    i recently documented an office building outside of boston, and it would have been nearly impossible
    without the 65 ( the 90 came in handy too ).


    have fun!

    I second the recommendation of the Nikon F8. Great lens.

    The only issue with the faster 90s is that the rear element is pretty large. On my Wista, with a fixed bellows, it is the bellows that is the limiting factor for movements and coverage with the Caltar HR. Monorails or optional bag bellows will help a lot if you plan on pushing the movements to the limits of coverage.

    Schn. 90/8 super A. Inexpensive and great, and totally sufficient coverage for 4x5 unless you really do pretzel bellows.

    Recently I posted a shot with this lens on 5x7, and it had plenty of coverage for that too.
