Super Angulon 75/8 : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I am looking for feedback about the Super Angulon 75/8. Is the more recent SA75/5,6 much better?

With wideangle lenses the drop off in lighting toward the corners means you should ge the largest aperture available. The f:/5.6 SA is a great lens.

Jean-Marie, I have that lens. Outdoors it is usable with plenty of light, indoors I`ve generally found it too difficult to work with. I am replacing both my 75/8 and 90/8 with the new 80mm. For my needs that seems like a good idea, hope it works out.

Generally the lenses look alike but the use of the f8 is complicated not only indoors but also if your camera uses the most common types of ground glass, in the end you'll end up guessing the focus rather than choosing it relying more on the aperture than anything else, if possible go spend the extra buck for it!BTW the 72mmXL is a better option (more movements) Good Luck!

Many thanks for your feedback. I understand that I need to consider a more expensive solution.
