Fujinon W S 135mm F5.6:

The 135mm is a moderately wide/normal-angle of view lens on 4X5 (equivalent to a 40mm lens on 35mm format cameras). Clean, compact, multi-coated glass. This is a great "do it all" lens, with excellent sharpness and contrast. Shutter sounds good on all speeds.

Schneider Symmar S 180mm F5.6:

The 180mm is a tele/portrait-angle of view lens on 4X5 cameras (equivalent to a 70mm on 35mm format cameras). Massive image circle, clean glass, shutter sounds good on all speeds.
