Braun Paxette lenses list

Hi, I'm compiling a definitive list of Braun Paxette lenses. Not that I hope to own them all.

I am looking at ebay listings, adverts, magazine articles, brochures, sites such as this.

According to an article in Amateur Photographer a few years ago someone said there were 42 different lenses that fitted the Braun. I have found 34 so far. I suspect that many on the list could be duplicated because there were -E- type i.e rangefinder coupled and non rangefinder coupled.

I've been looking here and found one or two not listed in official brochures.

Two Telons, reputedly by different manufacturers.

It was mentioned in the AP article that the British company Wray made a few lenses for the Paxette. The Lens Vademecum mentions two, which were probably adapted Wrayflex lenses.

The list so far, can anyone add?

I think you got most of them there.

It's funny that all the lenses are basically a 35, 50, 85 and 135.

The steinheil Quinon should be 50mm f2 and 45mm f2, and also there is a steinheil Quinon 50mm f1.9.
The staeble also produced one 50mm f2, I think it called Super Ultralit.

Enna Tele Ennalyt M39 200mm f4.5 - seen once on ebay
ISCO Iscomar M39 50mm f2.8 - Never seen it
Roeschlein Pointar M39 45mm f2.8 - have it
Roeschlein Telenar-E (or w/o -E) M39 135mm f5.6 - have both
Staeble Choro -E M39 38mm f3.5 - have it
Staeble Braun-Color-Ultralit M39 50mm f2.8 - lots on ebay
Staeble Kataplast M39 45mm f2.8 - never seen one
Steinheil Tele-Quint M39 85mm f3.5- seen once on ebay, didn't win it Sad
Steinheil Quniar 135mm f3.5 - just got this one. Smile

Supposedly Enna Ultra-Lithagon 28mm f/3.5 also exists for Paxette according to http://www.cjs-classic-cameras.co.uk/paxette/paxette.html and http://camera-wiki.org/wiki/Photavit_36

Not the M39 mount I think.

I agree, it is in the bayonet fit

I've got a nice tidy Paxette, the lens is - ROESCHLEIN - KREUZNACH POINTAR f2.8 / 45mm C Nr 49018

I think this is a very early, flat top with pressed steel accessory shoe, Prontor S shutter, model. I've looked for this lens before and found little about the lens other than it's rare and sought after.

I have one too. The lenses were marked either Pointar or E Pointikar. The Pointar was the non-rf coupled version for the Paxette II and the E Pointikar the coupled version for the Super Paxette as far as I can ascertain.

Does your Pointar have the Roeschlein - Kreuznach name on the lens? My Pointikar doesn't

It sounds like you have a Paxette II camera. It would fit into my collection nicely.

Most of the Braun lenses aren't terribly common.
