    Question about my lens...Copal 3, 3S or ?

    I just received a lens with an older copal 3 shutter without a retaining ring. I'm trying to find one but am unsure what size it would be. I tried one off my Nikkor W 240mm in a copal 3 and it was too large.

    Do I need a copal 3S size or another? Any help is appreciated.

    Do or do not. There is no try.

    That should be a Copal 3S shutter. The 305 and 360 I used to have were both in 3S, as is my 240mm. There's an eBay seller who offers retaining ring sets (spacer plus threaded ring), I bought a couple in July.
