    WTB: Mamiya 50mm lens + finder for press cameras (Super 23, Universal)

    I'm looking for a Mamiya Press 50mm lens with finder for Mamiya press cameras. Thanks.

    Still looking. Has everyone checked underneath their sofa cushions? Sometimes, lenses fall out of pockets and roll under there.

    Ain't none hiding in my sofa. But there's one without finder on eBay now. I wonder whether a 47/5.6 Super Angulon could be adapted to a Mamiya Press helical. Might be easier to find although possibly more expensive with adaptation and all ...

    First of all--curse you DIY'ers that are using the Mamiya 50mm press finders for your homemade contraptions gathering dust in the back of your closet. Second, thank you Dan, but that seller has obviously increased his price for a finder-less 50mm because the lucky buyer won't have to worry about losing or breaking the finder--and I can't afford that luxury. The 47mm SA is an idea, but unfortunately, I don't have a spare helical mount and unicorns are more plentiful than reasonably-priced machinists that take small jobs.

    Found one--oh sweet joy! Now for some ultrawide 6x9 rangefinder action. Anyone ever seen a diagram of the lens design for the Mamiya 50mm press? Just curious.
