    Does anyone know whether a 90mm f8 Super Angulon will fold into a Toyo CF? I don't have the lens yet. The Toyo manual sets the maximum front lens diameter at 62mm for it to fold in. If it doesn't fit is that pretty much what's to be expected with regard to most other 90mm lenses in terms of size?

    Many thanks.

    The 90mm Angulon will, but not the Super Angulon. Not only is the diameter too much, but it sticks too far out front for the bed to close. That would be typical for most modern 90mm lenses.
