great shots. ive noticed you have a few of these S-K retina lenses. do you have a kodak film cam? if not you should think about getting one. theyre incredibly well made and are fun to shoot. ive had the iii and iv, either is good. the iv shows settings in vf, which i like a lot. make sure its a totally working model as theyre very difficult to get fixed.

Thats what happens when you have too many lenses Wink Might yours be an Edixa Xenar in M42?

Thanks Tony. I do have an immaculate/working Kodak Reflex (126) ,if I decide to use film in it . At the moment I have a Contaflex 126 that I use my 126s in. Laughing The DKL have the benefit of being mounted via an adapter, while the Contaflex 126 dont ; in my case for now.

wow, i didnt know you could mount those lenses via adapter on a 126, thats cool. if you think you would ever like the 200mm lens, let me know. i very seldom use mine.

Before any confusion starts Very Happy

Tony,
I have the Kodak Instamatic Reflex camera takes 126s-thats what I meant, no adapters necessary, when mounting any of the Retina DKL lenses . Very Happy

Now on the other side ,I also have a working Contaflex 126 (takes 126 film also),with an assortment of lenses-where I would prefer to use my 126 film cartridges.

I hope we have no confusion now -sorry if I wasn't clear earlier.

Ciao

Thanks for offering your 200- now is that a Retina 200 or the Tele-Tessar. If you would pls PM me an image of lens I'd appreciate it.
