Kilfitt lens esp 150mm

Hard to find much info on the kilfitt 150mm f/3.5

Anyone have or use one now or in the past?

Any idea of the weight?

Ty all

The few I've handled (among which, alas, the 150 is not included) are beautifully made and extremely heavy (lots of brass), on a par with the best, heaviest Leica lenses.

Cheers,

Sorry, just stumbled upon your post...if you are still interested this lens weighs just over 14 oz with the lens hood.
Mine was made to be used with a reflex housing on a Leica. I am currently using it on my Olympus E-pL1 and was able
to put several extension rings together to make up the 64mm spacer needed to replace the reflex housing.
Here are a few pictures.


regards,
Marv
