    Yes. My Omegon ( practically the same lens) is in a Compur #0 now.

    Uli,

    Just curious: Do the lens cells of the 58mm separate from the lens housing similar to the front and rear cells of an enlarging lens?

    I got my Omegon 58mm in a broken shutter ( in a Seiko if I remember correctly); taking the cells off was indeed as simple as with an enlarger lens. No tools needed.
