I have the opportunity to add a Schneider 150mm Super Symmar HM to my 5x7 tech o utfit, but it is in a Sinar DB mount. I basically do landscapes mostly and ther efore was thinking of using it as a barrel lens since it is not too dear. Will the Auto Aperture DB mount be a problem to work with manually? Thanks Ryan

As a practical matter the Sinar DB lenses are useable only with the Sinar system -- the auto iris is operated by the Sinar auto shutter and has no manual setting as a free standing lens. The elements, however can be unscrewed and fitted to an ordinary shutter. You will also need to obtain/make an iris scale for the shutter.

Price for me to do this, complete with the shutter is $225.00 or $275.00 depending on whether you want the Sinar DB board back or not.

my DBs and I expect all others have a lock on the aperture ring so that you can
disengage the the auto iris if wanted.

Hi Mikec

This is the better DBM mount which you are describing!
The cheaper DB mount is missing this!
