Rodenstock Sironar-N 150mm F5.6:

The 150mm is a "normal"-angle lens on 4X5, (equivalent to a 50mm lens on 35mm format cameras). This is a modern multi-coated lens. It offers excellent coverage (covers 5X7) and extreme sharpness. Glass is clean, shutter fires nicely on all speeds.

Rodenstock Grandagon 75mm F6.8:

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.
