    DeVere lens panel comparison

    A couple of months ago I was having trouble discovering how many varieties of DeVere lens panels are in existence, due to not being able to fit one of type panel in my newer Mk5 DeVere 504. The left hand panel is the newer unit from the Mk5 which fits.



    The panels look more similar in the image than they do in reality.

    How are they different?

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    The all black newer panel is slightly smaller and possibly slimmer, with a different gradient to the slopes.

    Tom , the smaller mount may be for lets say my 11x14 or for an 8x10, I have had all three 4x5, 8x10 and 11x14 plus the horizontal 10x10 and have all sorts of mounts
    they drive me crazy trying to figure out what works with what. Its a bit like rubics cube trying to sort out what flange fits with what ring.

    It's not just me then. I've been told that all DeVere circular panel mounts are the same or at least compatible; however my 5108 (beige - probably mk4) with Dichromat colour head and 504 (mk5 - black) with ILFORD MG500 head each have distinctively sized panel receiving mechanisms...

    That sucks to hear, because now I don't know how to tell which will fit my 5108 when I need to get more boards. I would have thought it would be easier and cheaper for the factory to make one size mold and not change anything else.

    Anyone know where I might be able to purchase a lens board for a 5108?
