    Matched Pair Sinar Norma 300mm f5.6 chrome Symmars 5x7 TLR Norma camera great for portraiture. 4x5 Reducing Backs and Reflex Viewfinder make it true TLR. I'm leaving this camera set up in the studio.

    I hope you have a lot of bellows! when converted to 500mm it will take a bit more than that to focus at infinity..

    Have fun!

    There's also "focus shift" ... sometimes convertible lenses can be sort of tricky.. ic-racer wasn't talking about a convertible lens he said NON convertible lens ..

    Excellent, my uneducated guess is that your 500mm lens probably takes around 24-25" ...

    it's not found on their new re-designed website but thanks to mr peabody and his pet boy sherman
    here's some info on their "vintage" lenses like yours
    https://web.archive.org/web/20050303...tics.com/info/
    you can search your serial number to find out the age
    you can get tips and tricks old brochures
    white papers, optical mechanics. .. lots of fun stuff
    not sure if they have these things on their new website. ... couldn't find them..

    good luck!
