    For me it seems to be a toss-up between normal and slightly wide. I gues that treatslates to 50/35mm in 35mm film, and 150/135mm in 4x5. But usually it just boils down to what the heck I have handy at the time.

    My lens choices used on 4x5 are as follows- 150mm most (50%), 90mm second (30%), and finally 240mm about 10% of the time. I also use a 355mm and a 480mm but those are not used in a shutter and are at the maximum length of my bellows draw so they are only used when the composition screams for the compression or the distance (across canyons photographing Native American ruins) is so great I have to use it.

    I've used wide a lot lately, revisiting some places I just couldn't use "normal". So lately it's been about 40% 90mm on 4x5", 121mm on 5x7". Rest "normal" to moderately long (135-210mm on 4x5", 210-360mm on 5x7").

    My next lens will probably be a smaller 300mm I could use on the 4x5", or maybe a 450mm.
