Anyone know if there is anything special about the rendering of this lens ? saw it today at the shop, the small screw on the ring in front of the aperture is interesting..wondering what its for.

You fix the hood with the protruding screw. The hood has a groove where the screw's head enters and when you turn the hood it is fixed.

Maniac, I went immediately to my collection´s archives when I saw this thread, and I discovered - or remembered if I had still memory! - that I had two following serials : 1760609 and 1760610. This adds absolutely nothing to the question : just fun.

I seem to remember that this was a projector lens.

Walter Benser of Leica fame (in my youth) had one

converted to Viso mount for portraiture.



You are perfectly right. Here are photos of the Hektor 12cm-2.5 (code UFKOU) for projection I had in my collection.

      I like the Noctilux range for the extreme apertures, but I prefer the Summilux range for the best speed:size/weight ratio.
      Here’s a Summilux gathering of 21, 24, 28, 35, 50 and 75mm. All in black.

      I have a Hektor f1.9 73mm with Serial Number 98732. All the serial number listings that I've seen do not include this number.  Any help would be appreciated.

      I'm looking for the hoods for my lenses and I found some. The one that makes my think is what lens suits the Hektor 13,5cm f/4,5 screw mount.
      I saw several IUFOO for Elmar 9cm and Hektor 13,5cm but they say for M39 filter thread. So while my Elmarit 90 is M39 as the Summicron and the Summaron, I measured the inside of my Hektor and the thread is 33mm.
      I also looked in the Wiki but I haven't found any right hood.
      There is one on sale on the bay which I haven't found in the Wiki. It's this one:
      There is also this one but it says Elmar and Hektor, and I don't know if the size is correct:

      Hello, I have generously received a late model 135mm Hektor in M mount which has a lovely exterior, but there are dust bunnies clinging to the otherwise pristine matte black finish on the inside of the focus tube.
      I'm Seeking advice for cleaning these loose fuzzies without marring that currently unmarred paint. Shoukd I just wing it and gently wipe with a soft cloth?
      Note: so far the lens surfaces appear to NOT be hazed or fungus'd up, but the rear surface of the lens head is still waiting to be cleaned and find out for sure.
      All comments and input are highly welcome.
