    Thinking about a Voigtlander R2C but apparantly according to cameraquest the Jupiter 12 35mm 2.8 and Jupiter 8 85mm 2.0 will not fit on the body.
    Any experiences ?

    Is cameraquest "the usa voigtlander seller" a reliable partner for Voigtlander. I live in Belgium.

    Regards

    The Jupiter 35mm will not fit because its rear element extends too far back into the camera. Not sure about the 85mm.

    Cameraquest are one of the 2 US importers and are very highly recommended. However, as you're in Europe, you could try Robert White in the UK, one of APUG's sponsers and also highly recommended.

    Cheers
