    Wanted: Medium format lens/lenses

    I'm trying to collect parts for a homemade camera and am need of a medium format lens. More specifically I'm looking for the barrel/focusing mechanism/helicoid part of the lens, so the condition of the glass is not very important to me since it'll likely get discarded.

    If anyone has any moldy, fungus infected, and/or damaged lenses you're looking to get rid of for free or cheap, please let me know!

    Thanks!

    I may have a NEW Granview helicoid. I use them for mounting all sorts of lenses on my Kiev 88/cm, Pentacon Six, Exakata 88 cameras.

    Note: They are not very cheap -more to follow

    This may be of interest. I have modified a broken Olympus 50mm lens to use the helicoid as a focusing mount for a Super Angulon 65mm lens.

    Some info here:
