The 67 55mm f4 is a very, very sharp and contrasty lens right into the corners (I printed close to a metre wide from 6x7 transparency with this lens), but it is heavy, bulky and with a considerable heft. I sold mine for $120, replaced with the 75mm f2.8AL costing 12x that. All in a good cause: went to a young student interstate just entering MF.

I agree regarding the 67 55/4. Just beware that there are at least three or four different 55mm lenses made for the 6x7 system. Make sure you get this one!
if speed is not an issue then the 645 45-85mm FA plus a step down ring and a 0.5 screw on lens would fill the bill. all the angles and good IQ. the down side? it's a heavy lens and needs a tripod or monopod.

Also doubles up as a soft focus lens in case you need it.
