    I see alot of lens boards on ebay titled as Wista lensboard for Linhof and a mention on this forum of wista/linhof lensboards in the same reference.

    Does this mean it is compatible with my Wista Field?

    When it arrives I will measure but the sooner I can obtain these parts the better.

    This board also seems to have been cut in various areas. Any thoughts?

    Thank you and sorry for the flood of threads.

    Yes.
    The board is cut the way it should be to fit in the holder.
    It is some kind of noname board, but it should work fine with your Wista Field.

    There are however some differencies with older lensboards but I don't think you will see any of those.

    Thank you. I'm glad to find out that the large format equipment floating around is widely standardized.

    That's the beauty of LF stuff.
    And even if it doesn't fit it can be adapted without too much trouble.

    Good luck with your shooting.
