Not much of a long lens at all it seems. I would've loved to get say a 500mm(=125mm) but with my Wisner, I guess I'd only be able to have distant focus. This whole deal kinda sucks imo LOL </td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'>
I have heard of telephoto LF lenses though I haven't handled one. They are designed to give the focal length with a shorter bellows draw. There are tradeoffs with them I'm sure but I'll have to leave that to the more experienced members to outline that.
