    The 360/14" Artars are super lenses, no doubt about it. I've got a 14" and a 19"---super sharp and great for landscapes.
    OTOH, should you wind up with a tele (gulp!) tell us what you think about them after dialing in some tilts, shifts or swings and getting it all focused (bwa-ha-ha-ha!)

    He already mentioned that he ordered a 300mm f5.6 xenar (non-tele)

    Now that I have a Gundlach 4X5 Korona type wooden field camera with about 500mm of bellows (thanks Richard!) I will have no problem focusing the 300mm Xenar for portraits. Don't plan on taking it out too much since I have the Toyo but I am planning on finding a nice older lens for the Gundlach, to match for asthetics. I guess something in the 135mm range. Maybe a Dagor in an old compound shutter.

    Apochromat 19 inch lens on e-bay really cheap

    I was reading all the comments and there is a 19 inch on e-bay posted today March 31st 2011 for $49.00. That is a heck of a deal if anyone is interested. I would purchase myself but am out of work is money is tight.
