If you are wishing for a tack sharp wide field lens for 8X10, this is the one! These G-Clarons have an 85 degree field of view and this tiny lens covers 370mm. That's actually more movements than most big bellows wish to give at just 8 1/4" extension.

Don't bother giving me Schneider's advertised numbers. Those were for the Graphic Arts industry, not general photography. Trust me, I've used these extensively on 8X10. They work. And they produce incredibly sharp images! Almost as dainty as the 150, this weighs just 7 OZ.

This one is set in a Copal 1 Press shutter. The Press shutters are quirky. If you use the "open" lever, the aperture goes wide open too, so some people find that a nuisance. To stop the lens down while focusing, you have to lock it open in the B setting with a cable release. No big deal, but I've had guys think the shutter was broken. Nope, it's the design. Shutter runs great and glass is perfect.

I'd take it if it's still available and you ship to Germany.
