    I have had this process lens for quite some time, and have finally got round to mounting it on a lens board to use on my 8x10. Looks to have ample coverage, and was wondering what would be the maximum format it would cover when focussed at infinity.

    I tried a searching the main sources but can only find information on the 16", 19" and 25" versions. It has a maximum aperture of f10 and stops down to f128. It is a mounted in a brass barrel and looks identical to the lens pictured at http://www.cameraeccentric.com/html/info/wollensakcat/process.html

    My guess it should cover 11x14 maybe more, anyone have more info on this lens?

    I have the 19 inch F/10 and it easily covers 11x14. I haven't used it often at infinity, but as a studio lens it is very nice :smile:
