Hi Giles,

I also have a Bronica SQ-A that can use 135 film back, but I have never
think about buying that film back. With the small framing area it is
hard to view and my 50mm wide angle will become a standard lens!

Without a reduction lens the picture area will be very small, just as
Paul Farrar mentioned a 21mm super wide will become a standard lens! But
the ideal case is to have a 24x36mm CCD.
