    FS: 105mm f/3.7 Ektar in Supermatic

    This was an impulse purchase some time ago, and I'm never going to use it. It's really for the 6x9 format, and I use a 100mm WF Ektar on my 4x5 when I want something this wide.

    The single-coated glass is decent, though there are some minor cleaning marks and a couple of very fine scratches on the front element. The shutter works on all speeds and the progression sounds correct; I have no idea as to their accuracy. You can see some kind of discoloration or mild corrosion on the blades which doesn't seem to affect anything. The retaining ring and very nice brushed aluminum rear cap are included, but no front cap. No dents or dings. The shutter still has the annoying anti-rotation screw, you'll probably want to remove that before mounting this on a lensboard. This fits a Copal 0 hole.

    FINE PRINT: This is not the original shutter, but came from a 127mm or 135mm f/4.7 lens. I have a jpeg of the correct shutter face that I never got around to transferring.

    $70 plus shipping, which is what I've got into it.

    Hello,
    Could you tell me the outside diameter of the shutter as well as the outside diameter of the rear cell. Want to see if it will fit in old box type camera in need of a lens.
    Thanks

    According to the 1953 Kodak Ektar lens catalog on cameraeccentric.com the threaded portion of the mount is 1.375", or just under 35mm. I've mounted it on a Technika-style Copal-0 board for checking coverage. I don't know of an online source for shutter dimensions so will make some measurements after work.

    The body of the shutter is 2-1/2" across. At its widest point, where the flash sync posts stick out, it's about 3".

    Somebody should mention that this is one of the finest lenses ever made in this focal length, so I will.
