    Thanks Ole. I did contact SK Grimes and their estimate to put the proper shutter on my 121 s/a was more than I see the lens and shutter sell for in good used condition. I wonder if this isn't just the trend; lenses cheaper than repair labor. Dunno.

    JJ--do you know what exactly is wrong with the shutter? If the gears aren't actually worn or broken, Synchro-Compur shutters are very easy to clean.

    They are in general made of all metal parts, so you can open it up, flush it with solvent like naphtha, and not worry about messing up anything. In general they run dry, but a drop of light machine oil in the slow speed retard mechanism can help, and some heavier grease like lithium grease on the channels in the speed setting dial might make changing speeds a little smoother.

    There are some good instructions with illustrations here--

    You can often get away with less disassembly than the instructions describe. The instructions for the Compur Rapid shutter on this page and a little intuition will get you through a variety of Compur shutters.

    "hey were never in #1, but in the 0+1 which is a tube length specification for a #0 shutter."
    Thanks for that Ole - I misunderstood what 0+1 meant (never came across that designation before).

    Cheers, Bob.

    I got my 121 S/A without a shutter, David. It was mounted in an incomplete broken (no F-stop part) proprietary Sinar thing. The glass is terrific. I couldn't pass up the 'good deal'. So there it sits.

    Well, that would be harder to repair!

    No, easier! It just needs mounting in a shutter, and the cell spacing should be correct in the Sinar thingy.

    Gosh, Ole, you know how big, loud and clumsy (and EXPENSIVE) those Sinar shutters are? No way will I ever, ever use one in the field.

    I meant a proper shutter - a Syncro-Compur of course!

    Thanks for the replies. I cleaned the lens, the haze is definitely inside. The shutter seems to be a #0, and works fine. I will bring the lens to David, let him take a look first. In the mean time, I think I will ask for some money back from the seller.

    Ole, yes it was the 00 shutter. I enquired about getting it put into a Copal through SK Grimes but it turned out that it would have cost me as much as getting a "new" used SA 90.

    So there it sits ...
