Just got a Graphic View. Nice body with terrible lenses that allow no movement of bellows.
Can anyone tell me what a minimum image circle is required to allow for full or near full movement of shift/tilt/swing features. I think that 4x5 film is about 127mm across. So a lens that covers this format needs to have at least a 127 image circle. It then appears that in order to shift/tilt a bunch I would need an image circle that covers significantly more area. I don't need super wide angle and could probably live with even a lens greater than normal (about 165mm).
Can you guys give me an idea of what I should be looking for. Needless to say, I am anxious to fire up my new camera body and need a lens asap. I am trying to stay under $300.00 or so - if possible.
