    Re: 300mm lens on Linhof Master Technika

    Bob,

    Just to be clear, as you talking ab out non-telephoto lenses, as my 355mm Repro Claron is not in the rear most focused position at infinity when the beds are extended.

    I assumed that...

    Re: 300mm lens on Linhof Master Technika

    Atul,

    My 355mm f9 Repro-Claron (approx. 14") will focus to about 10 feet on my Technika V with about 16" of bellows.

    More severe case than you are suggesting, so I would say yes,

    Randy,

    Not just cameras vary, but so do non-original bellows. My non-original bellows on the 8x10 are relatively thick compared to the UK Custom Bellows on the 8x20.

  10. Re: portrait lens that will fold inside crown graphic

    It might just be me, but I would not think that a f9 G-Claron would be considered a portrait lens on 4x5, but it is a small lens and might fit when it is closed up on the CG.

    The 210 G-Claron will...
