    Wollensak Velostigmat 8 1/4" f/4.5 coverage

    I have this wonderful old lens in a Betax No 4 shutter. I have used it on 4X5 but am wondering if it was designed to cover larger. I have a 5X7 camera on the way. I can't find much info on-line for this lens.

    Well, it's a Tessar-formula lens. So it should cover 5x7 with some movements.

    The Wollensak catalog at Camera Eccentric says it will cover 5X8

    I'd venture to say it will just cover whole plate. The 9 1/2" version covers 8x10.
