I don't think this lens was designed for use on an 8x10.
This is an early design that worked with the Linhof Technika which is
a 4x5 field camera.
I may be posting a 375mm Calumet lens on here soon, I just want to
shoot a color sheet of film to look at it's performance. Send me an email
if you are interested in seeing a jpeg. Gil
Dropping the price to $375 and will still ship out priority within the US.
Overseas will be actual costs.
Going for: $350.... that's less than $1 per mm.
The lens has a 230 mm image circle specification, so it will cover 5x7 with very minimal movements, but not 8x10. I've never put mine on an 8x10 to see just what is usable for photographing, but I have shot straight on with it on my 5x7 Kodak No. 2 folding wooden camera. This is actually the main use I have had for the lens to this point.

I have this lens and it will cover 4x10, but it starts to get soft at the edges. I really like the feel of this lens and have shot quite a few portraits with it. The price seems fair for what you get here. Good luck with the sale!
