Because of the telephoto design of your lens, you may have trouble focusing that lens at infinity on a full sized (4x5) Speed Graphic. I believe the flange-focal length for your lens is 44.7mm and the minimum flange-film distance on the small 2x3 Speed Graphic is around 30mm, so you should be OK. You may not be able to find a 6x4.5 back, but I'd just use a 6x6cm back and crop when printing (and you indeed may find yourself cropping to 28x28mm if you want the entire field sharp )
agreed. Only truly viable option. I had the baby Graphic in mind when I last posted. Theres always some on fleabay
