    I have two lenses, one is a petzval of about 3" focal length and a 2" image circle, I'd say. Infinity focus about 50mm from the rear element. The other is a tiny meniscus lens also with a very small image circle.

    Both of these are too small for a LF camera, but I figured some creative type out there might have a use for them with a MF or 35mm camera. If so, send me a PM.

    ......or perhaps a 4x5, Richard, with a medium format back...........?

    I kind of doubt you could compress the bellows enough to focus it on a 4x5. Maybe with a bag bellows? I'm getting the lengths and image circle with the 'sheet of paper' technique.

    If you have a Rolleiflex SL66, then it is easy and fun to use!!
