    Using a mirrorscope lens for 4x5?

    Hi, was thinking of using a mirrorscope lens for my 4x5. Anyone have any experience doing this? Any thing i need to know eg: covers only at infinity etc... ?

    Thanks for the kind words. I've never tried to use anything like a mirrorscope lens.

    OP, if you have the lens, try it out. At least mount it up and see what it puts on the GG.

    Please pardon my weak eyes. I read the lens type in the original post as "microscope".

    If you're talking about the Mirroscope lens, Jim Galli has used them a bit. Perhaps he'll chime in.
