    Hi All, I have rescently aquired a s/h Sinaron 90mm f4.5 w/a lens that is mounted in a DB mount. The front part of the lens appears conventional (thread wise) but the rear part instead of having a male thread seems to have a female thread. As I want to mount the lens in a copal or compur shutter, is there adaptor?

    Thanks in advance Dave

    Not all DB mount lenses can be fitted into a normal shutter, sounds like the Sinaron is probably an f4.5 90mm Grandagon. My Grandagon & Super Angulon 90mm's rear cells fit direct to the rear thread of a Copal/Compur 0.

    I think you're probably out of luck with the Sinaron, but I'd suggest you ask Teamwork, (Foley St, London), tomorrow they may be able to advise you.
