    Ok- I know the obvious- it does cover 11x14. Does anyone know if it covers more, especially at portrait distances? I'm hoping it will do 14x17 at portrait distance, and if I'm REALLY lucky it will still cover or maybe just vignette at or near infinity. The reason I'm asking is because I have the lens, but it is on a lensboard to fit my 11x14. I'll have to have it re-mounted in a Toyo lensboard to fit my 14x17 to try it and find out. If anyone has any experience with this lens on a larger than 11x14 camera, I'd love to hear from you.

    *****Ooops! Just noticed that you were asking about the 11x14, not the 14x17 version. Sorry. I'll leave the reference here, though. ***


    Hey, absolutely everyone has one of these :tongue:

    See this thread over on the LF Forum.
