    I have a Fujinon 420 f/8 but I have only used it on 11x14. Very sharp lens... I didn't like the results I got from it shooting portraits... almost too crispy if that makes sense. I prefer the Nikon 450 f/9 for portraits. My favorite 8x10 portrait lens in the 14 inch Commercial Ektar.

    So how much bellows do you need for a head shot. I have a canham where it says 914mm bellows but when I measure it is 80cm. Would that suffice for a head shot with the 420L?

    At 1:1 a 420mm lens will need 840mm of extension, and the area photographed will equal the film size, i.e. it would be an 8x10 area of a subject on an 8x10 camera. A normal head and shoulder's portrait has a subject area quite a bit bigger than 8x10. That means that the required extension is less than 840mm. My guess is that 800mm would be enough.
    May tomorrow be a better day.
