It offers excellent coverage (covers 5X7) and extreme sharpness. Glass is clean, shutter fires nicely on all speeds.

The 75mm is an ultra wide angle lens on 4X5, (equivalent to a 24mm lens on 35mm format cameras). A modern, multi-coated lens with excellent sharpness and contrast. Glass is clean, shutter fires nicely on all speeds.
