75 mm Super Angulon v. Fujinon SWD

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

For a number of years I used a Fujinon 75 mm SW. I stopped using it because its image circle was too small and it did not offer enough movement to meet my needs. I realize (and in fact hve frequently posted) that there are few differences between most similar examples of Schneider and Fujinon lenses.

Having said that am I missing anythign in comparing these two lenses/ Anything that stands out in favor of one over the other? I know the specs of both and either will meet my needs. I'd love to hear from anyone who has used both. I am specifically interested in the Super angulon and the Fujinon SWD as I have an opportunity to buy used examples of each at a very favorable price. I am not interested in a 75 mm Grandagon or Nikkor unless someone is going to offer me one at $550 or less. I will likely test both lenses myself but would love to hear from ohters.
