    I have a very nice S-K 360mm Tele-Xenar in a working Compound shutter. What would it take to remount to a newer Copal shutter? I think it would need a #3 Copal.

    Any suggestions for a 75mm for a Pacemaker 4x5? I'm sure it it may be a big lens, but my 90mm F6.8 Grandagon-N works fine and it is large for my camera. Thanks!
