    Question Wollensak 4x5 Series IIIa EXWA f12.5, 3 1/2 focus lens

    I just came into possession of a Wollensak 4x5 Series IIIa EXWA f12.5, 3 1/2 focus lens in a Alphax shutter and was HOPING it would make a good wide angle lens for my Speed Graphic but its a no-go due to the fact that I can't get the lens board back far enough.

    Is this a roll film lens?

    Any insight appreciated.

    EDIT: NEVER MIND -- IT IS A 3 1/4 X 4 1/2 LENS.

    Kino...don't give up so fast...that lens will cover 4x5 easily! You may need to get some kind of a recessed board for the Speed, but the lens will work if you can mount it so it will focus at infinity.

    Vick,

    Thanks for the response!

    I just located a recessed lensboard for my Calumet 440, so if nothing else, I can use it there. Will give her a whirl tomorrow when I can see a ground glass image. Thanks!
