    I've been shooting a similar lens (I'm guessing the focal length is somewhere in the 12"-14" range), a Seneca Portrait 6 1/2 x 8 1/2, F5, which sure seems like the Wolly Vesta. BTW - if yours is truly a Vesta copy, it is also a convertible - use the rear element alone and I think you'll be somewhere around an 18" f11.

    Interesting, as soon as i get a converter lensboard (6x6 to 4x4) i will check it out. Don't have bellows enough otherwise to check it.
    Does coverage change using the rear element alone?
    Thanks for the tip.

    coverage should increase substantially.

    12" f/5.6 version

    Old thread, but I found a slightly longer version of this Conley Portrait lens. It should be interesting to try. I have a 7" Busch Petzval, a 8.25" Heliar and a 9.5" Velostigmat II but no portrait lens in this length.

    Has anyone had more experience in the last couple of years since this thread was started?
