I've already searched the archives...
Do you need to drop the bed when using the the 65mm or 58mm on a Century Graphic? I want to use a wide angle lens for landscapes and occasionally for interior shots when the 100mm is simply too long.

yes, you have to drop the bed when using the 65 (i have one) on a century or you will have part of the bed in the image.

this isn't necessary with the 80 wf ektar.

I've never dropped the bed when using the 65mm Optar on my Century Graphic 2x3, and have never had any problem. Suggest you try a few test shots with your setup and see what happens.
