    Unfortunately have to answer no, to that Robert - only the 90mm Super-Angulon XL (which I try quite regularly ). Schneider have good published notes of their lens image circles, however.

    Yes! and Schneider's coverage numbers are very conservative - in my experience!

    The published numbers for that lens shows it having a 212mm image circle.

    This question is almost meaningless unless you state what kind of photography you do.

    I'm a landscape painter. My primary interest is taking landscape photos to paint from so I use a Nikkor 50mm 1.8. Why 50mm? Because the angle of view is apropriate for a landscape painting. What I mean by that is, if you take say a 12" wide painting and hang it on a wall, the normal viewing distance is about arms length. The angle subtended by eyeballs to either side of the painting is about the same angle as a 50mm lens.

    If I wish to zoom in on a distant feature, say an island on a salt marsh, I scan the slide and enlarge in photoshop. I think of this as my "digital zoom lens". Results may not be as good as shooting with a zoom lens. but it's adequate for my needs and saves carrying a lot of gear in the field.

    Since most of my shots are taken in unusual places, out on a salt marsh, in a kayak, etc I use a robust Nikon FM-10 which will take as good a picture as any other camera when used with the correct lens and film.

    I have a digital Sony 717 which takes wonderful pictures but is a b$%ch to use in the field, as are most dc's. Also, the Sony pics, while I call them "wonderful", do have a certain "clinically pure" look to them which I don't care for. So the 717 stays in the studio where I use it to put stuff up on me web site.

    Not a lens? It is the only camera in the world that has:

    "Professor Radionov's extra-special and totally sexy lens. It is the close-up/long range/ night vision and ever-watchful glass eye from Russia with THE RELENTLESS WINK."

    I love my LCA.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Must have lenses for a desert island.

    35mm
    A 50mm Macro. I use a Olympus Zuiko 50mm F3.5. It is the sharpest lense I own (Even with a scratched rear element).
    Second choice a 24mm.
    Third choice a 100mm

    4x5
    90mm. There has been mention of the Nikkor 90mm F8. I use this lense. Although dim it is still useable. Cost effective. Extremely sharp!!
    150mm Rodenstock APO Sironar S. A good lense if your starting out with 4x5. My favorite 4x5 lense.

    Nice to see other Olympus users out there. My favorite three are the 35/2.8, 50/3.5 and 100/2.8. These are my go-everywhere lenses. After that it's the 24/2.8 and 200/4.

    Hmm. That's about everything in my entire 35mm kit.

    Yay Olympus!

    First choice: Zuiko 24/2.8
    Second Choice: Hoya 135/2.8
    Third Choice: Sigma 35-70/2.8
    Fourth Choice: Zuiko 300mm/4

    Gosh, that's the entire arsenal for my OM-2n. :-)
