    Fair question, Darin. It isn't practical. I shoot lenses from 38 mm to around 260 mm on my Century, 44 to 305 on my Speed, and 360 - 480 on my tandem. That's a lot of sets of stops. At $25-30/set, I'm much better off with my little t-shaped spacers. If I had fewer lenses, a couple of more pairs of stops might make better sense.

    I have a small square. Its useless when the front standard isn't in front of the struts. Been there, done that, don't recommend it.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    I like to have known infinity marks for each lens I use with a view camera.
    By having a known point to set either the forward or rear standard allows me to set up very quickly and point and shoot at infinity in rapidly changing light.
    Should I accidently break my "SatinSnow" all is not lost, I can still set up and shoot a scenic with the known setting @ infinity. Just something I have always done.

    Good point Charlie, especially for those of us who don't travel with a spare GG. I travel with two Graphics, so have a spare focusing panel ready to hand. There's nothing like cheating, eh?

    Cheers,

    Ah thats right Dan, I remembered you had a ton of lenses. But it sounded like you got rid of a bunch earlier in this post. I only shoot with 2 lenses on my century. An 85mm synched to the rangefinder and a 47mm, which I have the focus scale set for the hyperfocal. i never did pick up a longer lens, but its not on my list of priorities right now.
