Having the lens sit further forward is not a problem with infinity and effectively makes closer focussing easier as it requires less bellows extension.
I did not know that Navitar made lenses for formats greater than 35mm. Ideally you want the rear of the lens to have a diameter of less than 74mm for a Speed Graphic, the cylindrical piece on the back of my lens is fractionally wider...
Yes also for large format. Didn´t see proves/pictures made with such combo although, hah. Only mounted on LF cam. That Navirar what I have talked about has little smaller back hole. But I do not solve that then. See to much complication about adapting for some midformat cam or for acquiring new Graflex. You know.
Shoot on analog mainly with
then Pentacon6TL for squares
and Fujica GL690 in case of 6x9
