    Aero Ektar on Super D

    Does anyone know if the 7" Aero Ektar will infinity focus when mounted on a Graflex RB Super D? I understand that the 7" is a little shorter than what the Super D was designed for, not to mention the size of the optic and mirror clearance issues. Anyone know for sure by chance?

    I'm really interested in a Super D that's available to me, and I like the idea of mounting either an 8" Pentac or a 7" Aero Ektar for portrait work.

    Suggestions?

    No, it won't fit. The back of the lens protrudes quite a bit. You would be lucky to get a really head/shoulders shot.

    I know he took a lot of those photos with an Aero-Ektor monster that John rebuilt

    I have a photo of one that he did on my phone... I will see about uploading it.
