    4x5 lens slightly longer than 90mm

    Hey gang, I'm looking for an affordable lens a little longer than 90mm (which vignettes) that's got a circle big enough for 4x5.

    I can rob any of half a dozen 105mm lenses on old 6x9 carcasses that won't have the mechanical vignetting problem from the cover, but they don't have a circle big enough for 4x5.

    I've got an Angulon 90MM, and it's got good coverage, but it's a little too wide for my purpose here.

    I can find spendy 120mm Super Angulon 120mm on the bay, but I don't want to pay that much for an experiment.

    Anyone got a suggestion?

    What about a graflex / kodak 127mm from a speed graphic or similar camera?

    There also seem to be a few 100mm lenses on ebay right about now, a few schneider symmars and another ektar.

    100mm Wide Field Ektar. After all you did say slightly longer than 90mm....

    It's quite a nice lens.

    120 Regular angulons are good too and they cover 5x7 if you ever move up.

    I robbed a 127 Ysarex from a Polaroid 110a that covers 4x5 and allows for a good amount of movements. They are not expensive at all and can still be had off the evil auction.

    Fuji 105mm W or CMW, will cover with room for movements. They both have a rated ic of 180mm. For lots of movements the Fuji 105 SW f/8 has an ic of 255mm. The CMW an SW can be found new.

    HOpe it helps.

    I really like my 135 graflex optar off my crown graphic. And actually it [barely] covers 5x7.
