    30" Dagor? WOW! Now there is one I've only read about. I bet that baby'll cover the side of a barn.

    Thanks for the input, now I know what to look for. I have been offered a Emil Busch Comb 36" II lens. I have no idea if it will cover that format. The guy selling has no experience with lenses (he sell antiques). I has no lensboard and is very cheap. I am thinking about using it on my 12x16" camera too. I guess it will cover that format without any problems.

    There is a list of vintage lenses for 20X24 at the following site. http://www.wisner.com/20x24lens.htm
    Most of these will be hard to find, and some very expensive.

    In the modern era the best buys would be process lenses in the 30-35" range. Any lens of this type (Apo-Tessars, Apo-Nikkors, Red Dota Artars, etc.) will cover 20X24 easily. For super modern types, the 600mm Fujinon A would be a great lens, and the best of all is the 550 XXL Schenider, which is really a multi-coated Dagor type lens, and super contrasty. But you will have to pay a lot for the 600mm Fujinon-A and the 550 XXL.

    Any Dagor of 19" or more should cover 20X24 with movements, but these also tend to cost a lot.

    Will this cover 20x24" format - Goerz Apochromat Artar 14/42 Inch. It is for sale at almost local auction.

    The antique dealer want 500 kr for the lens I mentioned above. I guess I am buying it just to check it out.

    a 14" Apo-Artar will barely cover 8x10. If it is a 42" Artar, it should cover 20x24 with no problem. I've not heard of a 14/42 before - is that supposedly a convertible lens?

    That would be a good choice. It is a 42" f14 lens. It will cover a 22x27" plate at 1:10 and a 42x48" plate at 1:1. But you will need lots of bellows.

    Fujinon 600C is a great lens for the format. Doesn't weight anything.

    I reckon that my 600m f/9 apo-rodagon process lens should cover 20x24 with some movement. The thing just weighs so much, I think you can forget putting it on a wooden camera. I did take it past 1:1 with a ridiculous piece of aluminum extrusion as a rail, but you know what my problem was? Couldn't reach all the way from the darkslide to the lens to hand shutter it. :rolleyes: Now that is a problem, when you need an assistant just to pull a darkslide.

    Besides all these glorious oldies, what about pinhole Should be quite special at that size.

    Pinhole is also on my plan, just need to figure out the size of the hole.
