    Graflex Optar 65 - Tele-Xenar 180 Question

    I doubt the 65mm covers 4x5. It was probably designed for one of the smaller formats.

    The Optar 65 was designed for 2x3 Century, Crown and Speed Graphics; it will not cover 4x5. Mine is quite good; I bought it as a smaller replacement for a 65 Superangulon when backpacking a 2x3 camera.

    The 180f5.5 is a 6x9 only lens unless you want a circle image on 4x5 which might be cool!
