Does anyone know if the Fujinon-C 450/12.5 will cover 8x20? Thanks, Arie

Absolutely. Great lens. Dave

The Fujinon C 450mm f /12,5 covers 486 mm which is not enough to covere the diagonal of 8x20 in. George

The numbers above are correct, but I am pretty sure it would reach your format if you close it, say two more stops, for the numbers are generally given for f16 or f22. I second: it's a tiny sharpie, excellent!

Pretty sure the consensus on this forum is that the 450 version covers 8X20. The 600 f11.5 version of this lens is also great and is my normal lens for 12X20 portraiture. Specs would suggest that it barely covers 12X20, but I have taken shots (not at infinity, but at quite some distance away) with nearly max front tilt and never seen so much as a black corner! I usually use it at f45 or f64.

Good luck,
