Modern 135mm Lenses on Crown Graphic : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Are all or most modern 135mm/f5.6 lenses (Schneider, Rodenstock, Nikon and Fuji) small enough to permit me to fold and close a Crown Graphic without removing the lens and lensboard? Modern 135s look longer and a little wider than the original 135mm Xenars and Optars or 127mm Ektars that came with the Crown, but my guess is they'll still fit ok. Can anyone confirm that they're ok before I order one?

Greg, crown-graphic with a rodenstock sironar-N 135/5.6 folds perfectly.
