Coverage of 8 1/2" Kodak Commercial Ektar : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I have a 10 1/2 Widefield Commercial Ektar, and it is a beautiful lens for my 8x10 photography. I am considering looking for an 8 1/2" Commercial Ektar to use when a slightly wider angle lens is needed.

Is the coverage of the 8 1/2" lens adequate for 8x0 photography with some limited movements??? Thanks to all!!!

I've used this lens for 4x5 work but don't think it is suitable for 8X10. The info I have states that the image circle is only 270mm at f22.

This lens is not listed as covering 8x10. One option is getting a 190mm WideField Ektar which should just cover 8x10. But probably not much in the way of movements.
