non-agfa lenses for the Agfa Ambi Silette

Anyone know of any? I have a Schneider Curtagon in Ambi mount on its way to me. Will see how it does.
And another question. Has anyone actually seen or handled a 50mm f2 Solagon in Ambi Silette mount? I know a 55mm Solagon exists in Ambiflex mount but that is not the same.

Thanks for any thoughts, WES

Schneider Curtgon for Ambi Silette

Here is a 35mm f2.8 Curtagon converted to Ambi Silette mount. No RF coupling, but beautiful conversion. Not sure who did it, but has an Agfa marking on it. Anyone know of any other like this?

That Curtagon is a nice find. It has always surprised me that the Solagon was not offered for the Ambi Silette, that would have been a potent combination.
