    Thanks David,
    Most of my shutters look like they have been well cared for over the years by the people who have owned them previously. This probably explains why I haven't had any problems with some even though they are very old.

    I got it!

    The "Best Wide Angle bang " for my respective currency just arrived in my mail: a 135mm/f:7 "Mono-Werke Monoplast" which looks like it has about 100° coverage. Total price, including three other lenses (all bought as "old shutters with glass in them): Euro 24.-

    I guess I should have also included coverage circle as somewhat of a requirement. I currently have a 150mm Sironar N (I think it's an N) and I wished I would have bought something with larger image area.

    Super Angulons can be from 1950

    Hi David

    I have a 90mm f8 Super Angulon from 1950 it has the compur 00 and a selftimer.
    The lens is not to bad but against the todays standards wide lenses is it a bit behind and has not a flatfield. Also does it have a bit of focus shift!

    In addition to the 90mm f/6.8 Angulon and the various versions of the Super-Angulon another good wide angle lens for 4X5 is the 90mm f/8 Ilex-Calumet Wide Field Caltar. I don't know the exact design of this lens but its coverage and performance are very similar to that of the Super-Angulon. I use this lens as a super wide angle lens on 5X7 and it covers nicely when stopped down, but with virtually no movements.

    if you can find a wollensak 3 1/2 " exwa ( extreme wide angle ) it is pretty inexpensive and works well. stopped down it will cover 5x7. on the down side, it is a f12 ( but it opens more for focusing ) and there is not flash sync. it is mounted in a tiny little alphax shutter. i used it as a back-up when my 90mm raptar ( also a nice lens ) was on the blink.

    good luck!
