    Re: Seeking Advice For 11x14 Lens

    Oh, yes, for head&shoulder portraits (but a little sharp!) or at tabletop distances, the 300 should cover 11x14 with no problem! Which I will keep in mind if the occasion arises.

    I had not heard...

    Re: Seeking Advice For 11x14 Lens

    I have the 19" and 24" Red Dot Artars (both barrel). Good starter lenses, also. Got them as long lenses for the 8x10, but use them with the 11x14, also. My first 11x14 images were with a loaner,...

    Might be an odd beastie then. I do not believe the 300mm or the 360mm changed design much and kept their same image circles when Fuji Ws went from inside to outside writing. My 300 is outside...

    I've used some Fuji x-ray film (double sided also) in 8x10 and 7x17. Due to the thick emulsion of my carbon tissue (for making carbon prints) using double-sided x-ray film had even less sharpness. I...

    Excellent...let us know if the fix fails over time, as only time will tell. There is a maximum temp recommended for cleaning the drums -- don't know if there is one for your repair material.

    Mine does not seem to really cover 11x14 well...but I also have a Fuji W 360mm/6.3 that covers well enough closed down to f22 or smaller aperture. Quite a lot of glass, though.

    If the adjustment knob did not turn while tightening the other knob, then the standard did not move and focus is preserved. And always double check after tightnening -- no reason to just hope.
