    Re: Beginner: Regular or DB lenses?

    Or you could also get a Shen Hao XPO45 which accept a Sinar shutter albeit with restricted front movements for field work.

    Thank you very much.
    I just found an old Dial-set Compur on eBay to move the 1938 Tessar 135/4.5 from a Sinar Db board to it.
