I have choice between these two lenses. What are the differences and pros and cons of each. The coverage seems to be about the same with the nod going to the Angulon. The Angulon is perhaps easier to focus because of the F6.8. I will be using it on my 8x10, 4x5 and for 4x10. Thanks Art Nichols

I own a wa dagor (coated) but and have never used the angulon.
I have only used it for black and white 8x10 contact printing.
For my use it is sharp, light weight and compact (fits in my shirt pocket). The old acme shutter is consistent only at slower speeds (a common symptom with all 7 of my acme/ilex shuttered lenses). I don't know how it would handle color or hold up to enlargement. I don't find focusing a big problem (i do use a bright type screen)
