Dale,

It is heavy because it is a W. One assumes W for wide. The tag on it said 420mm image circle. I think 8x10 is 313mm so that ought to give you a little walking around room or shifting and tilting room. I hope you enjoy it.

Big as it is, it is dwarfed by the 300mm Schneider APO Symmar. That is heavy.
