distortion with 150mmgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
Is it true that when using a 150mm lens in 4x5 format, doing a closeup shot (not macro), that distortion can occur?

Distortion - straight lines are not straight. Foreshortining - items closer to the lens are larger than they should be.
Which are you referring to?
Foreshortening is normal and the shorter the lens the more pronounced it is.
