Somehow this lens found its way to me, and now I don't know what to do with it...
Originally it's a 35mm cine lens.
It has no focus mount, but the glass is clear (although a bit yellow overall). Fortunately no fungus, no haze and almost no cleaning marks.
I'd really like to make a usable lens out of this...
Any ideas where to get a mount for it?
The first option is to use a SLR mount - that way I wouldn't need RF coupling and I could focus it on the focussing screen. Some people have done it and got some rather nice results (see here
The second choice would be to use mount from a damaged Leitz Hektor 73mm f/1.9. But that lens seems to be a colector's item, and I bet even a mount fetches higher prices than I'm willing to pay.
But what if I still wanted to use it on my Bessa and Zorkis ? I was thinking a mount from the last series of Jupiter-8 (where the RF coupling ring rotates when focussing) could be used, and the RF-coupling ring could be filed down (similar to RF coupling rings of Summicron-C and Elmar-C lenses for Leica CL).
Or maybe if I could find a machinist capable of making a mount for it ...
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
