    Does anyone know if the 360mm Tele Xenar will work on 8x10? Some time ago I stumbled across a chart with coverage details for old/classic LF lenses-is it still out there somewhere? Also is there a UK answer to Steve Grimes?

    No, that lens is designed for 4x5". You can check coverage at www.schneideroptics.com. I have a 360/5.5 Tele-Arton that's designed for 5x7" and will cover 8x10" at portrait distances, but not at infinity.

    Again no, the 360mm Tele-Xenar is designed for 5x7", not 4x5". Just like the (later) Tele-Arton.
