    45mm APO Grandagon fantasy

    This lens is available in focusing mount. How is it fixed on lensboard? Screw in to a threaded hole? My crazy idea is to build a WA MF rangefinder out of a roll film holder.

    The focusing mounts from Rodenstock have a #3 shutter on the back. They mont to any lens board with a 3 hole.

    Are you buying this lens new?? If so, you might be interested to know that Silvestri provide LF and MF lenses in focusing mounts and also available is a metal lens board (complete with silvestri bayonet mount)that you can use to attach the lens to a front standard of a LF camera. This option, although expensive, MAY be cheaper than the Rodenstock one!! Regards Paul

    What is silvestri's website address? I'm interested in atleast 150mm lens that is in focusing mount. I have the cambo with 47mm XL but I wanted a longer lens for portraiture. The cambo 150mm lens is available but very expensive. I'm wondering whether there is something cheaper out there.

    Sorry for the confusion, PMA has us pretty busy.

    the focus mounts have a #3 thread on the back. Not a #3 shutter. They accept Rodenstock lenses in 0 shutter from 35mm up.
