    Would a Horseman Super ER 75/5.6 work on a WISTA RF?

    As the title implies, I'm wondering if a "Horseman Super ER 75/5.6" could be used on a WISTA RF without movement compromises etc

    No. Image circle at F22 = 120mm.

    Should work fine with ground glass focusing as I don't think the rangefinder can accept that focal length. With a 6x6cm back you will get ample movement. If using a 6x9 back the movement available is less and may be limited by your bellows. On 4x5 it should work well with closeup photography and cropped distant photography. Converging vertical line correction when enlarging would be not any different from printing negatives from cameras with no movement.

    I usually don't crop when I print negatives from that lens on 4x5".

    The one issue is the bellows allowing movement.

    75mm with standard Wista RF/DX/VX bellows is very tight for any movements. After trying and not finding much benefit from a recessed board for that focal length (75), I have concluded a bag bellows is a must for 90mm and wider lenses.
