Well, donít give up on your 11x14. I have a 800mm APO-Ronar, in a barrel mount, that, at f22, will keep the telephone lines on a farmhouse 1200 meters away sharp and clear with plenty of coverage for an 11x14. Of course, there are some drawbacks. It is 110mm in diameter, will only just fit on a 5 1/4 inch lens board and weighs 8 Ĺ pounds. Also, for your macro needs, at 1:1 you will require a bellows over five feet long. Of course, since that was what it was for, it should excel for that purpose; provided the subject is flat and you do not need a depth of field greater than the thickness of print on a piece of paper.
Can I wrap it up for you?
