It will be a 4x5 portra 160 and imacon x5 scan. I guess I don't need to upgrade...:whistling:
I'd just go with what you have until you have your total workflow ironed out. Then, if for some reason
there is a shortcoming in your particular lens, you might supplement it with something else. But I don't
see any reason why it wouldn't be adequate. It helps to be on the main road awhile to learn how to
drive before veering off onto the 4WD drive tracks and cowpaths. I did entire one-man shows back when I only owned one view camera lens. I've got better lenses now; but some of those old 30x40's
still look pretty damn good.
If you can outshoot a 150 6.3 Fuji, you be a better photographer than me. I have had mine since 1985.
Of course I don't blow mine up to 30 by 40 but I see nothing in my 16x20s that would indicate any lack of sharpness other than personal mistakes, I mean artistic decisions, I might have made.
Save the money. Buy more film.
