I'm considering either a Nikkor-W 240mm or a Symmar-S 240 as my first lens for 8x10. The focal length corresponds roughly to my favorite lens for 4x5 (90mm), and the cost of either is very reasonable. Neither seems to offer great scope for movements, however. Any experiences that could help with my decision?

PS I would consider alternative lenses if you can think of any.

Thanks!
