    I thought I'd ask this in a separate thread.

    How easy is it to find a SIXTUB lensboard in 39mm mount?

    Can I get a 25mm mount lens that's on par with 2.8 nikkor and cheaper than a lensboard?

    I don't mind a slower aperture, I heard some lenses are really undervalued, but I don't remember which.

    Thanks

    Should be very easy as these are the most common, I think I have a spare- but I'm not back in the UK for about 7 weeks.

    I have a little 50mm Componon that I think is 25mm thread, it has a plastic adaptor to 39mm.

    The lenses or the boards?

    I have a componar with 4 blades. People tell me it's not very good.

    I'd want a durst lensboard, ideally, but don't really know where to get them.

    Is that a 2.8 or slower one?
