    That is a really nice focal length on a 4x5... I have a 480 mm Apo-Ronar that was 'rescued' from a Graphic Arts Camera that was heading for the town dump when the institution was changing over to fully digital. It is currently mounted in a home-made plywood lens-board on my old B&J
    'woodie' and I would like to find a Linhof board into which I can mount it. I made a plywood lens-board to 'accept' my Linhof mounted 240mm Sironar on The B&J... but now need a Linhof lens-board into which I can mount the Apo-Ronar and make use of it on the Linhof.... (I have the extension rail that provides for around 600 mm of extension) and (dammit) Linhof boards have become really expensive.... and... I have heard that the 'made in China' Linhof boards and somewhat flimsy (read 'thin').

    Does 'anyone here' have any experience with the lens-boards from China?
