Re: It's not the format, it's the lens

Thanks Harry, Yes you can see from my other thread about enlarger lenses I was heading that route as well.

Its a bit limiting having to turn the whole mount around. I was used to 8x10 bellows cameras years ago and was trying to get that same flexibility with the bellows unit on my D800 whihc is coming.

Whats the image quality like with the enlarger lens? I was thinking it may just be a bit better with a large format lens to get the image circle. The focus point at infinity was a bit baffling for me so i figured it was easier if I knew the mount to film plane distance as I could approximate the fit to the bellows better.
