I know that for your purposes, it's too dim a lens, but I love my 111mm W.A. Dagor. At f8 as a maximum, it won't be good for shooting in extremely low light situations. On the upside, it covers 5x7 with significant movement, and probably even covers whole plate with minimal movement when fully stopped down. Another plus - the thing is TINY, and can even be stored on the camera with the lens board reversed (not that I do such a thing - just an observation on the compactness of the lens).
