I have one. Too small a circle for 4x5. Unless you don't want movements. Great for portraits. I actually love the images it produces, but hate the darn circle that keeps cropping up. Mine is old. Dean

There are two more lenses in this category: Rodenstock Rotelar and Voigtlander Telomar. They are all for 6x9 format. Not enough IC for 4x5.

me too, got it for a song... a little flat... more a press lens than anything else... infinity on mine is about 150.... decent lens for rangefinding handheld... not good for much else I'm afraid.
