I've been looking to pick up an older folding medium format camera as my heavy Pentacon Six kit rarely sees use due to it's size. I stumbled on a Super Ikonta III on eBay with minor lens fungus which looks simple enough to clean, but I don't want to jump into something that would be a serious project as I know some of these lens elements are difficult to separate. The fungus appears to be behind the first element, but I was wondering if the front element is just the single element or two that are attached. I've looked at lens diagrams of a Novar, and it appears that the first element is in FRONT of the aperture, and the other two elements are behind it, but I'd like to know from someone who's actually played with this camera.

Thanks!

Andrew
