    Re: Copal 3 lens board question

    Are you sure? No 62mm holes indicated here: https://www.largeformatphotography.info/lensboard_hole_sizes.html

    3mm is too much to try to file out, unless you have a lot of time.

    My Nikkor 120mm f/8 fits fine on the Technika (80mm rear element size) with a bit of room to spare, so there is no problem whatsoever.

    I don't have one. A cursory Google search indicates a rear element diameter of 70mm, so should be fine.

    Yes, I really don't understand the view from some here that one should be using a CF at all times regardless - especially on a 90mm which has very little fall-off to begin with on 4x5.

    Yeah I've never actually pushed it out to its limit. 800mm total length I think, without any kind of lens extension. I might try something with my 240mm tonight which'll be even higher mag.
