Re: Eclair Cameras: Kinoptik Apochromat 25mm f2 for Cameflex / ACL?

I have either that lens or a similar lens and someone ground the back edge
of the lens barrel on a bench grinder to make clearance in the camera.  The
job looks terrible but the camera can function.

The diameter of the glass optics suggest that it is for 16mm.  The lens
vignettes the image on 35mm academy aperture.  The Nikkor 24mm f2, on the
other hand, makes a bright image from corner to corner of the frame.


Hi there,

I have a Kinoptik Apochromat 25mm f2 that was shipped to me from France
along with a Cameflex camera I bought. The question/concern I have with the
lens is that I'm not sure what camera it is for. It is a standard Cameflex
mount (same as ACL and NPR) and fits nicely in the Cameflex but when I
rack-focus the back end of the lens extends and ends up pushing against the
ground glass (as a result the previous owner - or happened in shipping -
chipped the ground glass). My assumption is that this lens is not for the
Cameflex but may have been designed for the ACL and the NPR. Any thoughts?
