I've read the piece on the viewcamera website and it mentions that using lens with focal lengths longer then the bellows you won't be able to focus at less then infinity. At least that's my feeble understanding. Do you lose anything else? Assuming the camera doesn't fall over from the weight of the lens-)) For a camera that is going to be used in the outdoors mostly focussing on far away things does this matter? I know I should be looking at shorter focal lengths but the budget looks better with barrel lens and a lens cap shutter. They mostly seem to be close to the max bellows of the low cost cameras.
