OH MY GOD I didn't really know this little piece of speed graphic story :)) thanx guys, oh yep, I love learning and I thanx you so much for letting me improve my slang engl words :)
2F: dunno but I hope it can focus on infinity too, for sure it will do on a gaoersi 6x17 that is on my shop list too...all the best
The way to answer this kind of question is to look up the lens' flange-focal-distance, also called flange-to-film distance (a) and the camera's minimum flange-to-film distance (b). If a >= b the lens will make infinity on the camera.

I've posted a table of Graphics' flange-to-film distances in many places including APUG. Look here: http://www.apug.org/forums/archive/i...p/t-92299.html
2F, you posted in that discussion.
Short answer, 75/5.6 and 75/8 Super Angulons will focus to infinity on a 4x5 Pacemaker Speed Graphic.
Tim, that can't be 75MM! The last production run for that was in Israel back in

Don't limit yourself to buying here. There's also www.keh.com and, of course, ebay.com, ebay.fr, ebay.de, and ebay.co.uk
And don't limit yourself to Super Angulons. In alphabetical order, Fuji, Nikon, and Rodenstock made comparable lenses.
