A good solution would be to attach it to my new ( old ) camera. I know what you mean ole. When I got that old brass lens complete with full set of waterhouse stops, I was amazed. It's nice to know that some of those lenses were well cherished and lovingly taken care of. I've got two, and would love to find a third in a telephoto, but the cameras lens board would be too flimsy to handle a big lens.

Question Ole, what do you do about a mounting flange/ ring? Mine has none. Remember I need guidance when it comes to lenses.

The lens is even more beautiful than I thought. Absolutely spotless - both brass and glass! One surprise: There's no threaded mounting flange - the end of the barrel flares out, and has holes for mounting directly to the lensboard! Which means (for a number of strange reasons) that I can't put it on my 18x24cm camera after all. Well, I'm sure I'll find some kind of solution!
