    My money's on 7x17, but I've been wrong many times before.

    Walk softly and carry a tape measure.

    It's definitely a 7x17. I regretted giving mine up because it got unwieldy for me when in my late 80's. I now have it's little brother a 5x12, but still long for my trusty 7x17.

    I have a Korona 7x17 and this looks like another. I put a ruler to the screen and given that the lens boards are 5.25" square (or so) the rear ground glass is about 18" or so - too small for an 8x20, to 7x17 is more likely. It's not bad getting film holders for the 7x17 ($405-450 range). This one looks lovely, at least very well kept. Does it come with the back rail set? Be careful - these things are addictive and the pano formats are (I think) less bulky/heavy than a similar full-frame). Go for it. --alfredian

    Sweet!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.
