Post by rockycarter »

I was wondering if some one might know. If Rafe is still making attachment rings. This linos lens is 45.89mm in dia. Would some one here know where i can get a mount for this lens. Here is and image of the lens

Doesn't the 105/5.6 feature a Schneider Optics V-groove dovetail mount? I could be wrong.
If I'm not, an original Schneider adaptor that converts the dovetail to M42 can be had for around $50 used. Not cheap but you do get Schneider's quality.

The Schneider mounts are V38, but the Linos 5.6 inspec.x mounts are a larger V46. I've used the 43mm filter threads to attach my copy, but finding a V-mount adapter would be better long term.

I‘m also using 43mm step up adapters, works pretty well.

I would like to thank all of you for your help. I finally got this lens mounted by using masking tape. This lens is incredible. I can see I need to build a dimmer switch for this lens. I am going to try to upload a photo. Wow is this lens revealing. Thank you all very much
