    Schneider G-Claron 355mm/f9: Tele or Non-tele?

    Any one know that if the Schneider G-Claron 355mm/f9 lens a "tele" design, which will brings it a shorter actual focusing length than 355mm, or not? I have a Toyo AII camera with only a 324mm bellow. I just wonder if the lens can be used on it or not.

    Like to hear your comments, especially field experience with this lens.

    Tks

    Pete,

    It is not a telephoto design and takes 350mm of draw.

    You will require the Toyo 4" back extension in order to use the lens.

    Well, you might be able to use one of those extension boards, with the screw-on sections, to get around the 4" extension back. On the other hand, I think it's a #3 Copal on that lens, and it could get pretty clunky hanging out there in front of the Toyo.
