    Which , even though it is the post war model, is little more than a paperweight: however, the lens on it looks to be a semi-respectable wollensak 50mm f/2.8 velostigmat. It is in a non focussing M39 mount and I was wondering which FSU lens I could cannibalize to make it work on the bessa....

    Doesn't the Perfect have a 38mm screw mount?

    No, I can screw the lens onto my bessa: what I was considering was obtaining an fsu collapsible industar and removing the lens to use the focussing mount to operate the velostigmat. I would only consider using an elmar if it had been totally ruined. I would not lose sleep over destroying an industar. I would also like to experiment with a Jupiter 3 to provide a focussing mount for a Sonnar I have
