So I bought a shutter to try to front-mount my huge 465/9 Apo-Ronar (which worked really well, btw, now all I need is a bellows long enough to focus the damn thing).
On the shutter that I bought was a front-mounted 150mm Comparon.
I paid a fair price for a working shutter, so I'm happy with that, the lens is a total bonus, but it'd be nice to use it too.
What it has is a 32mm very-fine thread. I presume it fits on a Durst because it's mounted to a "Durst 3214 Camring", which has the requisite M40x0.75 to fit a #1 shutter. I've tried googling just this adapter and it seems not to exist on them thar internets. But it does what it does, front-mounts the Comparon to a shutter. And the lens works fine as a taking lens according to the macro polaroids I shot on the weekend (I'm still awaiting the Velvia back to see how well it really worked)
What I would like, however, is to also use it as intended as an enlarger lens. My LPL6700* has an LTM 39mm mount, so what I would like is to find an adapter from a Durst 32mm lens to a regular LTM enlarger.
Does such a thing exist?
I've tried googling and ebaying but the search terms are too broad and I end up with hundreds of irrelevant results. Does anyone have (or know of) a list of standard Durst 'camrings' that might include a 32-39mm adapter? I'm guessing that if they made one for a #1 shutter they may have may one for an LTM mount too?
Or indeed anyone else who might make them? Like I said, the lens was effectively free, so i'm not about to spend $150 to get SKGrimes to make one, but I'd pay maybe $30 for something if anyone knows any leads?
*yes, I know my enlarger only takes 6x7cm. But I want to enlarge some 35mm and 645 by about 4-5x to postcard size, which would work fine with 150mm and 2-6x is where the Comparon is optimised. Also, I'll probably eventually (don't tell the missus) end up with a 4x5 enlarger so it'd be nice to use it when that happens.
