    I have an Industar-37 300mm f/4.5 — it doesn't cover 8x10" though.

    It seems like it should come pretty close if it really is a Tessar design, right? At the usual 55 degree coverage angle, I get an image circle of about 306 mm, *just* short of covering 8x10 at infinity. Is that about what you're seeing with yours, or does it have narrower coverage than usual?

    If it's close at infinity, the OP would probably be fine using it at portrait distances.

    I get vignetting on a full plate, so I imagine the longer side of the 8x10 will have it a lot worse. I've never shot it on an 8x10 sheet film, just aluminum and glass plates.

    But for a $50-100 Russian Tessar-knockoff, it's a good bargain.

    how about something like a triple convertible
    or a symmar convertible

    i think there are 370/480 symmar convertibles
    you need to bank on needing way more than 480 of bellows though
    the nodal point is not at 480

    the TRs tend to have a nice signature ...

    sometimes they go not too much $$
    but i don't know what cheap is anymore ...

    14" Air Ministry f5.6 made by Cooke. I've had a couple that were outstanding. I like the Cooke version better than the competing Dallmeyer. there are codes. VV, WW. something like that. Maybe someone will pipe in. Happily, they're still relatively cheap!

    Just curious, which lens is this?
