I have the new Schneider 6x Aspheric and love it! I use it for ground glass
focussing (4x5) and slide viewing. Awesome!

Be careful about the screen surface you get. I looked at all of them, glass
beads, linticular, & matt, and chose matt. For me it works best. I have a
70x70 Daylite Picture King. It has keystone correction and is very easy to
set-up and take down.
