Super angulon 90 mm f 8 : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I have had a super angulon 90 f 8 for many years that i have used rarely because i am not attracted to the moderate wide angle look that has in my 4 x 5 . Now i have a 5 x 7 and i have been told that the above lens covers this format...... True? I am not lazy, i am waiting for a lensboard, so that i will be able to check myself. I am posting this to alleviate the suspense.....

It will cover. Not by much but it will... See: Schneider Super Angulon

At 5x7 you will get a very slight light fall of on the edges and with no movements sharpness will be OK. If you want to be really finnikey get a center spot ND filter but personally I don't worry. I use the lens with 6x17 format (17cm=approx 7")
