    Re: Good light lens for 8x10

    Ok, not mentioned is my 355mm / 14" Repro-Claron in a Compur 2 shutter.

    Not common, but have owned two over the years, so they can be found.

    Compact enough that I can insert the lens mounted on...

    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,
