Hi folks

I have been collecting a nice set of these lenses, so far I have 8/135, 9/150, 9/210 and 9/240. The 135 and 150 only have the labelling 'Repromaster' but the 210 and 240 are labelled 'Staeble Ultragon'.

I have also seen some labelled 'Staeble Intergon' but they look the same as my Ultragons.

There are also much larger versions such as a 9.5/213 which I am sure must be different designs.

I'm interested in gathering together as much info about these lenses as possible, so far all I can find are anecdotal comments by users such as Jim Galli who said 'they have all the attributes of the G-Clarons'.

Can help much, but I had one of these that I mounted on my 7x17 to see whether it covered. Didn't hit the corners (approx. 10mm short), so I sold it on.

Interesting, that's a hell of a big image circle for a 213mm lens. Was that coverage at a small stop?

I didn't get that far with it, Ian. It didn't have many stops (I think it only went to f32), so I figured that I was shooting too close to the edge regardless.

Sorry that I can't help more...

Thanks Lachlan, that is quite useful info.

The 9/210 and 9/240 I have close to f64.

I have the 213/9.5 which I used several times on an 8x10 Deardorff, I was never able to get it to clip a corner. I also have a 14" lens that came with the same batch, which I assumed was from the same maker but it's unmarked. It has an f22 Waterhouse stop held in place by 2 screws. I've never shot with the stop removed so I don't know the aperture wide-open, but I've been meaning to try. I've had some difficulty focusing at f22. From what I can see, it appears related to the Heliar.

Good to know that lens covers 8x10 with room for movements, cheers.

Hi, Just got a heiloprint 213, I'm wondering if anyone knows the size of the retaining ring or where I'd get one I'm guessing its 77 or 76mm.

I would like to know what size the thread mount for 210 and 240 is. Anyone can help? Thanks

I have the Eskofot Ultragon 9/150 and G-Claron 9/150 by Schneider-Kreuznach.
Data sheet says G-Claron has M32.5 x 0.5 thread. Eskofot has the same.
I tested both on the right adapter and wrong with 0.75pitch. we made the wrong adapter.
I then rechecked with pitch-size-measuring tool. dont know the right term.
here is my thread:

Several years ago many of these were discussed regarding ULF use
I spose there are appropriate search terms that will pay off
The discussions , as typical, include hearsay, but more importantly, actual experiences

it could easily be guessed since M32.5 x 0.5 is Copal 0 mount thread- see skgrimes-table.
