Of course you are right. I wrestled a bit with this one. I'm using an old Graflex XL lens that I hacked to fit the LF 4x5 with some fairly intense metalworking. It's a bit of pushing the envelope. Focused hyperfocally it -almost- covers 4x5. You can see all four corners of the circle in the frame. Nowadays I will just use it on 9x12cm which is smaller format but very close.

Precision camera positioning was everything with this one. There is something special about this spot. So relaxing.
