Cheap Wide Angle Lens for 2 1/4 x 4 1/4

  1. I recently converted an old 116 roll film camera (2 1/2 x 4 1/4) to
    use 120 film for 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 images. Currently I'm using a
    90mm f/6.8 Graflex Optar lens. I'd like to get something a bit wider
    like at least a 65mm. Does anyone know of a low cost (around $200.00)
    65mm or wider lens that will cover this format at infinity? Thanks.
  2. A 65mm Angulon will cover 6x9cm (2.25 x 3.25). You should be able to
    get one of these for about $200 if you look. BUT for your size, I'm
    afraid you'll have to get a 65mm Super Angulon for proper coverage.
    You can get an older one for about $350 if you look hard.
