Now that Leica has acquired Sinar, it might help many of us to have a forum on the Sinar Digital camera/LF digital backs/& lenses. It would be of interest to gather ideas and tips, on how to use old Sinar cameras and go digital. Anyone with such interests, information and experience here? Would be happy to learn whatever I can on this. Thank you.
Hi, I'm a professional photographer with a penchant for vintage rangefinders. A few years ago, I bought a lot of photo equipment at an electronics recycler. In it were several pieces of ultra high-end equipment, including some Nikon RF tele lenses, making it an absolute score. However, there is one piece that still to this day baffles me. At first, it appeared to be the rear group of elements for a large format lens. However, I have never been able to find a single piece of information regarding this piece of equipment. It is labeled as "ELCAN f/9.5 170mm Leitz Canada 090-0104" with "Lens Made In Canada" in smaller print. I don't know whether this is a scientific lens, part of a large format lens, or some other special-application piece, so ANY information would be VERY greatly appreciated. Since I don't have any idea what the lens is for, I obviously do not have a use for it, so I would like to sell it, and would like to have as much information as possible. Thanks in advance!
