    I might be picking up a 6x7 camera this weekend. I currently have a 35mm lens and a medium format lens for my enlarger. Will the MF lens work with 6x7, or will it only work for 6x6 at the largest?

    I know, either way, I'll have to buy a 6x7 film holder.

    Thanks, folks.

    what's the focal length of your lens?....usually between 75mm to around 90mm works best......I use a 75mm for 6x6 and 6x7 and it's fine...

    It'll probably work fine. I use the same 80mm lens for both 6x6 and 6x7. Watch for light fall off around the edges and corners.
