    A 125mm Fuji is a fine modern lens, but I don't know about its current price.

    The 135mm nikkors and symmars are widely available too. But the prices can vary quite a bit. For some reason they demand a premium over the 150's.
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    One thing to look out for is that the oldest 90/8 Super angulons are that they are in a #00 shutter. Obsolete, and an added expense to get it in a board, if you're not making your own boards.

    IIRC only the silver body ones are #00. But I've seen them go in the $90-120 range recently.

    Lot's of great stuff everybody, thanks! 120mm seems like the perfect FL to me, as it'll contain all that 135mm has, so cropping to that coverage would be an option, and yet it's just a tad wider for when I need it.

    Thanks... now hopefully I'll get some Christmas money to do this!

    I loved the little 127 Ektar I used to have. It was right up there with the sharpest lenses. They are very cheap but you will probably need to get whatever shutter it is in cleaned. The coverage isn't great but it is still a good lens.

    Funny you should say that... my 135mm is in an old Rapax shutter and when I got it it fired great at all speeds. My Synchro-Compur on the other hand was sticky, and has actually gone back to broken since it's been fixed. The Rapax was left in a cardboard box in some tech school somewhere, completely neglected and yet it worked great.

    They don't make 'em like they used to I guess!

    I have one of these too. I have a lens board for it to fit my home made 5x4 camera and I am also modifying the 110A it came from to take 5x4 film holders. However, I have not yet taken a photograph with it!

    My Speed Graphic is almost back together again so I think it may get some use on that.

    It's interesting to hear that it has plenty of movement as I thought it only just covered 5x4 (or 4x5 if you prefer!).
