    Re: Wollensak Process lenses 20" f/10

    General principles (f/10 process lenses typically cover around 45 degrees) predict that it won't come close to covering 14x17.

    No. If you're thinking of mechanical vignetting, it is usually caused by the lens' rear barrel. Stopping down diminishes it. To see the effect, take a lens in shutter, open the shutter, open the...

    Y'know, Bob, the wretched things are designed so that when used on the right lens (a) the filter will not vignette and (b) a thin filter mounted on the CF will also not vignette.
