    Why does everyone always ignore the 180? But not a tele, of course. A perfect compromise between the 150 and the 210.

    I agree. Especially with a lens like the Fujinon W, which has a relatively large image circle for 4x5. But the 180 on the OP's list is a telephoto lens, which is probably why they have not been brought up all that much in this thread.

    I mentioned 180mm lenses, however. I mentioned that the 180 has the same horizontal AOV as a 50mm lens on small format. It is about 20mm (13 percent) longer than normal for 4x5, while a 150mm is about 10mm (7 percent) shorter than normal.

    So the 162 Wolly would be about perfect - actually a very nice lens. No, from the OP's list, the best choice was the 210, although a 210 Geronar would have been fine and a lot less expensive. Save the money for film!

    I agree, a 162 Wolly is a pretty neat lens. It was my first 4x5 lens(and it's not going anywhere so don't ask if it''s for sale!) It's worth looking for (along with the 203 Ektar/Optar & 215 Ilex) as great examples of classical glass (I couldn't resist the Mason Williams inuendo.)

    Yes, my first LF lens is that 162 Wolly, but i didn't shoot anything with it yet, and i started with my first new Lf lens, Rod. 150mm Siro.N, this lens is on my Shen Hao and 162 Wolly is on my Speed/Crown Graphic bodies.

    Hi , Can i suggest 4 lenses with two being more important than the other two for landscape, option 1 90 mm f8 (smaller lighter for landscape)option 2 150 or 135
    option 3 240 mm Fujinon f9 (perfect backpackers lense )and Fujinon 300 8.5 C (Ditto) if you shoot interiors ignore most of my suggestions . But buy the 90 before any other , it is the first length that does not need centre filters as standard or reccessed boards (pain in the A!!)I own a 58 mm SA and hardly use it , Why? Bag bellows , centre filter and recessed boards , mandatory !!Cheers Gary
