what's the real coverage of 210xl lens?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

the schnieder 210 xl lens has a listed coverage of 20". can any one who owns one, let me know if the image circle is any larger? will it cover 8x20, 12x20?

Looking at the MTF charts they are ruler flat all the way to 500mm, so I would guess 600mm at the least and maybe even 700-800mm! What do others think?

This truly is an amazing lens. I think of all the current lenses it is THE one with the largest coverage.

We put the 210XL on a 12X20 camera and it seemed to work fine with no movements.

I have this lens and would be interested in using it on 12x20. Was that at infinity? Were you stopped way down?
