    You'd have to look at the 400T Fuji f8.....it needs around 260 of bellows draw. The Fuji 450 C is a non tele design & needs more bellows draw.

    The 450 C is not telephoto so it would need 450mm+ of extension. Too long for your camera. Seek a telephoto design lens like a Fujinon-T.

    If you were able to google you would easily find that the lens has 425mm flange focal length.

    See this table on the Ebony web site.

    The last column lists the "flange back"for many modern Large Format lenses.

    A top hat lensboard could give you about 130 mm additional extension. Ebay sell jinfinance usually has them at a reasonable cost, although not today.

    Hi Panoman,

    Another lens would be the Schneider 400/5.6 apo tele xenar -Compact version
    Maybe a little too heavy for you but has a 250mm ic and 285mm ffl--optically
    excellent and very usable also on 5x7.

    I've got the Schneider 360mm Tele (modern parallel front element, not older cone shaped one) for my Shen.

    Relatively light, quick and very sharp. Quite large, being on a Copal 3.

    Need to watch flaring, though.

    As mentioned , the Fuji 400t is about the longest. Been hard to find over the last 18 months.

    Another vote for the Schneider 400 apo tele xenar. Incredibly sharp, and covers 5x7 with 2" of movement according to Schneider. That means straight on with 8x10 and the last 1/2" of each corner may not meet Schneider's spec.

    Cheers, Steve
