Any thoughts on helping me with this choice?
Studio product use mostly, with occasional arch interior/exterior.
I will be using a view camera Cambo Ultima 23D or Arca Swiss M
Digital back used primarily will be IQ250 CMOS and occasionally Leaf Credo-80
I am currently leaning toward the Rodenstock 40 but only because I am told it should work better with the micro lenses on the IQ250. I have no experience with those issues so don't know.
Also, there seems to be a lot of variation in the Rodenstock line between blue bands, magenta bands...etc. Whats that about?
I think the SK 43-XL has larger ic, less distortion (I have read), and is of course much cheaper (about $1500 less!)
Confused a bit here, don't want to spend $4k on a lens and make the wrong choice. I know, I know...$10k here, $40K there...pretty soon you're talking "real money"....
I have pretty much already decided on the SK 120 ASPH and APO Digitar 90 for the "normal" lengths, but any thoughts on those also helpful. My main decision now is this wide lens solution, thats the pricey guy. (of course I could always spring for the Rodenstock 90 and make them all seem cheap in comparison)
Thanks in advance for any info!
