Any comments about a 270 Tele-Nikkor to be used as a long lens on a field camera for landscapes. Thanks,Steve

Nice lens for roll film sizes, but with 160mm image circle, barely covers 4x5 which means only movements would be back tilt.

Why would movement be so important for a tele lens?

Small tilt angles move the image circle alot due to the long "lever arm" of the focal length... so back tilts may be necessary.

Well a better choice because it is cheaper, smaller, lighter, and has a huge image circle (meaning when on axis you are using just the heart of the lens and also much more range for movements) would be the Nikon 300mm ƒ/9 M-Nikkor, unless your camera doesn't have 300mm of bellows capability and you are unable to come up with an extention lensboard. other than that: fine choice!
