I tend to shoot with the longer focal lengths from 4x5 through 11x14. I have a hard time making the wide angle view work for me. It may look good on the ground glass in wide view, but when I make a print in my normal size (11x14 contact or enlarged 11x14 from 4x5) all the little details are so small in the background of the print that I always wish I had used a longer lens to capitalize on detail potential of large piece of film. If I were making very large prints often, than those details would show up with a wide view and I might have a different opinion.
