Can anyone tell me if this projective would be suitable for full frame photography with a Zeiss Universal? Presumably correctly matched for Zeiss objectives? (160TL finite) Presumably that would be the only lens I would use to project the image onto the sensor?
Thanks in advance, Tatler.

AFAIK the 45 60 05 is for Axio series, not compensating and likely not easily adaptable to the Universal, also the P 2.5X photoeyepiece 45 60 21 is for Axio and modern Stemi models

A Zeiss West 2.5X KPL projective seems a very scarce beast, I only recall seeing one in many years browsing Ebay. Maybe you would find useful a Zeiss Jena model, I've read that they are very compatible, but I have no experience.

The usual arrangement used by Zeiss is a 10X KPL eyepiece with a 63mm relay lens over it making a 2.5X afocal setup. In fact there is a special (and expensive) S-KPL 10X/20 photoeyepiece and a 63mm relay lens is present in the MC63 cameras and the 0.25X labelled SLR adapter 45 60 29 I use*.
