    Better is the enemy of good enough. Which viewing angle better fits your photographic view of the world? Can you see yourself coming upon scenes where you would need one more often than the other?

    I have both 50mm and 65mm lenses for my RB67.

    I wouldn't want to have just one of them - they both make excellent negatives and slides for me (when I use them properly), but they make very different negatives and slides for me.

    I own and use way more wide angle lenses than longer focal length lenses.

    Hello;
    I would be concerned about if the lenses were focusing properly on my camera. A depth of field tests or placing a ground glass on the inner film rails would be my greatest concern. Does not matter how sharp a lens is when the image is not focused on the film. By the way, I would keep both lenses, Steven.
