    Hi everybody

    I'm almost a newbe in LF.

    I have a good deal for 4 lenses who fit on a C model Pressman.
    Can I use these lens on a D model camera with enough movements with the front and the rear standards? Are these lens will fit on a D lens holder?

    Any advise will be appreciated.

    Sorry, but more info might be necessary before you can get any help here. What focal length are these lenses? The C is a 2.25 x 3.25 format and the D is 4x5. Some of the lenses that were sold for the C might cover 4 x 5, some won't. The lens boards are different, but the lenses can be shifted to new boards. In general, clearance for the rear elements wouldn't be an issue if you're up-sizing the camera, so it comes down to coverage of the 4x5 format.
