    A Telephoto Lens for 8x20 !

    This is officially an 8x10 lens, having a published image circle of 310 mm.
    Back in 2006, a thread on the Large Format Photography Forum noted that this lens will actually cover 8x20 !!!

    Here's the scoop:
    http://www.largeformatphotography.in...ad.php?t=16441

    So I bought one.

    Yep, it covers 8x20 at infinity..
    At f32 the corners are about 1-stop darker, easy enough to burn in at printing.
    Since I contact print 8x20's, image quality outside of the 310 mm circle was perfectly acceptable.

    If you've got a 7x17, this would make a fabulous telephoto lens.
    Obviously, if you've got an 8x10, look no further for a top-notch telephoto.
    A lensboard extension tube was available, but I didn't need it.
    (But even if I did, I probably would have made it. It's nice to be handy at making things)

    This is a triple convertible lens, the front element and Copal #3 shutter are designed to work in conjunction with a rear optic of varying focal lengths. This lens has the 1200 mm rear optic. It could be replaced with an 800 mm optic (at an aperture of f12), or a rear optic for a 600 mm f9 tele lens.

    Here's a nice summary of the system:

    Too bad I'm running out of steam, at 76 I need to downsize my cameras and formats.

    $1600 and it's yours, filter holder included.
    If you want the Omega/Cambo lensboard, add $20.
    The yellow filter is not included.

    I'm not set-up for PayPal, but Visa/MC is ok.

    This is a wonderful lens at a very good price. Too bad I own one already. Just wanted to put the good word in to help sell it.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Since I also have a small machine shop, I could custom make an extension tube that would let you fit this lens to your existing lens board (Just in case you don't have enough bellows draw).

    PM me if you're interested.

    Down to $1500 + shipping.

    If it doesn't sell, it's going on the shelf until the economy improves. I can wait.
