    Sorry to disagree. The image circle is 336mm, just a hair larger than 8x10 film.

    I use my Nikkor-W 250/5.6 on my 8x10 with no issues, other than virtually no movements.

    Thank you both for the correction. I was looking @ the wrong table row.

    336 is much better than 295.
    With 336mm you can tilt a little or rise/fall just a little.
    The Sironar N/Caltar II-N 240 with 350 is "just a little more" so is an improvement, but not a big one.
    Still, that extra roughly half inch is a measurable improvement.
