    In case anyone is interested (LOL) the Ektar 203mm fits nicely on my Maximar 207/1. Minimum focus is about 4 feet. No problems with folding the camera up. I had an extra body and wanted to play with a longer lens.

    That should be a great combination. Nice lens for the money these days.

    Is this Ektar US or UK manufacture ? The US version's in a Supematic(or similar, the UK version is in an Kodak Epsilon (earliest), a Prontor SVS or a Compur - all 3 #0 fit.

    It's US in a Supermatic with #0 size. The Maximar hole for the Compur is somewhat larger at 39mm. So you need to be careful with centering. The Supermatic has a wide flange that covers the hole. I suppose I should take it into the darkroom to double check for light leaks. Funny thing was the Ektar came to me mounted on a real Linhof board. Taking it off I found out that the postioning screw was still installed but the board had no hole for it. So it's been mounted slightly tilted for all this time. Guess the previous owner didn't have any problems.
