Are they somebody who used an Ektar lens Kodak Ektar Wide field 250mm f6.3 for 11 x 14 format?

Any advice appreciated

I have the original Kodak view camera guide with specs on all the lenses then available - It is not in the right place in the bookshelf, but I will scan the relevant page when I find it

However, if I have put it on my office desk all hope is lost


Found it, scans of the two pages in a few minutes - Firstly, yes it will

I have one that gives me a little room for movement on 7x17. It ought to give a lot on 11x14.

If you want the recommended hyperfocal tables and other gubbins let me know

(Having a good day processing the sheets of film from late last week, so not such a miserable bastard today)

Previous attachment too big, so here again at a smaller size

If you want the recommended hyperfocal tables and other gubbins let me know, only another two pages - They list all the WFEs made at that time - Also anyone else with a Kodak lens of that period for view camera let me know, I will scan while the last rack of films is drying - Some nice ones there, oddly, the one I thought might be a bit weak looks the strongest, but enough of drivel
