    FS: Komuranon 90mm f/5.6

    I got this lens along with a camera purchase. I'd have liked to keep it, since it appears to have a large image circle. I mounted it on my Wista, and didn't seem to run out of coverage. But, it's huge, and using it is a hassle. The end cap sizes are 100mm, and it won't fit into the 80mm opening on the Wista. The only way to use it is to unscrew the "hood" on the rear element, mount the lens, compress the bellows, remove the groundglass and screw in the hood. Reverse the procedure when removing the lens from the camera. Too complicated!
    So, this is for cameras with larger lensboards. There are a few scratches on both front and rear elements and a couple of pinpricks on the rear element. I can include the lensboard for $25. The rear cap is missing, but I will use a temporary cap to protect it in shipping. The Copal 0 shutter is the newer all-black version, and works properly.

    $215, including EMS shipping. Paypal.

    Thanks for looking,

    I wonder why you would need the hood inside of the camera? Does the lens work without it?

    The lens will certainly work without the hood. But it will be close to the groundglass, and it would be very easy to damage the rear element without the protection of the hood.

    I need the Copal 0 shutter for another lens that I am buying. I am now selling only the lens cells. I will ship them mounted in a non-working Copal 0 shutter. If you can salvage the shutter, good for you. $135, including EMS shipping.
