Need opinions and experience with a Rodenstock MC 210 F:6.8 lens. I have a chance to pick one up and wanted to know how it would fit on my Tachihara 4x5. Any input would be greatly apprciated. Thanks for all your help.

It's a decent lens and works fine on the little Tachi.

The major differences between it and the Sironar line are that it doesn't have as much coverage and it may not get as crisp at as wide an aperture, but otoh the Tachi doesn't have all that much front rise and working apertures tend to be around f22 anyway.
