Where can I find info on this lens? Do I simply switch the elements to get the two focal lengths?

I have a 4X5 technical camera but I think this is for a larger format camera. I was looking for a telephoto. I may be in over my head.

What's it worth and are we compatible? I have return rights if not satisfied.

Help me obey wan

The catalog says that when the cells are used together the f/11 goes in front of the shutter, the f/8 goes behind the shutter.

It is a triple convertible lens. Each cell can be used by itself or the two can be used together. The two together should give 223/4.5. Single cells and the set cover at least 5x7.

Telephoto? Long focus yes, single cells' back focus usefully shorter than focal length, no.
