compact lenses for crown graphic : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

What modern style lenses will fold up into a Crown Graphic?I like to be able to fold the camera up when hiking.I would prefer a coated lens and a modern shutter.

I have a super graphic, with similiar clearance for folding it up with the lens on. You should have no problem with the 'normal' focal range f/5.6's: Sironar S 150, 135, Symmar S, etc. I also have a Fuji A 240 f/9 that fits. A Nikkor 90mm f/8 will not fit though: the front element is too wide to fit between the rails when folded.

If you are into a fast lens try the 135mm schneider xenar 3.5...its small and folds up nicely into the camera. An all around good lens! And bright! Regards, Emile
