    You have created a great list, an admirable effort. I know it is well into the project, but I would suggest you add the weight of the lens. You mentioned it, but don’t show the figures. Some of these can be a real beast to carry about.

    A lens to add would be the 210mm Super-Symmar HM f5.6 356 100mm weight 1510 grams or 3.33 pounds. I thought it was a hand full until I traded up to a ssxl 210mm 5.6 500 135, weight 2002 gr or 4.41 pounds to obtain coverage for my 7x17.

    I'd opt for a Nikkor 120 SW or Super Angulon 165 F/8 (if my front standard could take the wieght---those things are huge) but both are out of my budget, so I'll stick with my 159mm Wollensak "wollcoated" yellow dot.

    Thanks John K, and congrats on 1000 posts!

    Thanks Daniel - Is that list kept up to date by anyone? Not that LF lenses is a fast moving field, but it's marked as 2002.

    There's the 150mm f9 GRII Hexanon, a tiny lens that covers 10x8 well - there are slight variations depending on the cell spacing. Forgot about my 3 GRII Hexanons when I answered the same question on the UK LF forum

    In the UK you can often get a set of 3 GRII's 150mm to 300mm for less than £100 ($160). A 150mm GRII on it's own shouldn't be much and it'll fit a TP shutter

    Thanks for all your help and suggestions everyone! These are what I ended up buying:
    115mm f6.8 Rodenstock Grandagon N
    150mm f5.6 Schneider Super Symmar XL
    190mm f6.3 Kodak Wide Field Ektar
    The 115mm is a bit of an outsider as it doesn't quite cover 8x10, but the price was right and I decided that I could put up with vignetting for such a crazy wide angle!
    Can't wait to start using them. Thanks again and all the best, John
