However the 90 mm SA XL is a better choice on the 6x17 and the 6x24 would require the !20, 121 mm SA lens or the older Angulon 165 mm lens! But the 210 would be the best choice but this one is heavy and it's just to big, this lens is a 100 degree! Now of course the old Angulon only give you 90 or some more degree and those other a 100 or something! Now they will cover better and the light fall out is not recognizable because the rear cell have a smaller ( I mean bigger radius and therefore more flatness) if you compare those with the SA XL's!
There is some older lenses like the Wollensak E.X.W.A. F12.5 6 1/4 would cover well to and there is some others but I don't remember those! I just guess that some older Goerz wa would cover too But I really don't know what degree they working on! probobly around 80 and uppward to a 90 or 100.
Of course there is another problem with the fotoman as I have pointed out in The Tomiyama Section the lensholder. On the Tomiyama you got bellows to calibrate for the lens! I think and I can say that Tomiyama is an old man but better than fotoman in it's constructoin! It's like my Seneca is better than my Tachi! At least is what I beleive and there is some 100 years age difference!!
To tell you the thruth you got two options either you use filter or you cut out a large part of your neg if you don't like the fall out efect!
Now I have find that (because I work with black and white only) that having a red filter on the angulon with another filter is vigneting!
I forgot to mention as I'm a B/W man the yellow filter is a some kind of standard filter on my cameras at all the time.
