I know that the spec sheet says NO, but the spec sheet says that the SS XL 110mm won't cover 8x10 and it does. Bottom line is I don't trust the spec sheets for lenses. Does anyone with this lens know if it covers 4x5 reasonably well at infinity?

I don't own the lens, I own the 58XL and have used the 47xl. Those two barely cover 4x5. There is a way to do the math to detirmine image circle, but I don't know it -- I'll bet someone who does will be posting shortly.
