    With that said, i did see on occasion in the past SA with rear cells that looked just like this and lenses worked fine. That is, they looked like that on the outside and rear end, as i did not pay that much attention to the inside part of the rear cell.
    No, I'm saying look at the rear metal barrel, the SA's are conical then a straight bit holding the rear elements, your barrel in the 1st & 2nd images has a step in that barrel and it's rather obvious.

    Yes i see that now. So - alas, can anyone identify/place the cell on the right?

    Ian - just came across this random newer SA 90mm - rear cell actually looks exactly the same as the bad one i have... with the step at the bottom.

    Well spotted, it's clearly different to the other 90mm f8 SA rear cell so perhaps Schneider re-designed and changed the lens at some point and an older front cell is incompatible with a newer rear cell.
