Does anyone know if the Schneider Symmar 240 mm f5.6 lens covers 10x8 ?
If you use aperture f22 the symmar 240mm circle is 335mm,
The lens works good for 5X7 but has to small circle on bigger
Look at http://www.schneideroptics.com/info/vintage_lens_data/large_format_lenses/symmar/data/5,6-240mm.html to see what Schneider has to say about it.
It covers, but just barely at f:16. At smaller apertures it's an excellent lens for the format, although I have so far only used mine on 5x7" and 18x24cm.
To me it's an added benefit that it's in a Compur #2 shutter - with the same flange as on my 165mm/f:6.8 Angulon. Saves me a lot of swapping
Lasse and Ole,
Many thanks for your helpful comments.
