Zenza-Bronica S2A, lens question

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by jean_moxhet, May 13, 2007.

  1. Recently I had the opportunity to have a Zenza-Bronica S2A with Nikkor 75 and
    200mm lenses. Nice beast even if quite big and heavy.

    I'm interrested to buy a wide lens (40 or 50mm) and even after surfing all
    around the web, I still have 1 question.
    Do I need a specific focus ring for such lens or is working with the one I have
    (75-100mm model)?

    Thanks for any answers.
     
  2. The Zenzanon 50mm should be interchangeable. However those lenses in good condition are still fetching serious prices. (Often as much or more than the camera body itself).
     
  3. All the lenses from 40mm to 200mm use the standard focusing tube. It's only when you get to long lenses, or the bellows, that you remove the focusing tube.

    There's a 50mm f/3.5 Nikkor, and there is a 40mm f/4 Zenzanon, and apparently a 45mm f/4.5 Komura. Nikkor is definitely the easiest to find! Looks like the 40mm is the hardest to find.
     
  4. I've been using a 50mm Nikkor in addition to the 75mm in the same mount on my Bronica C without problems. Both are great lenses. rcb
     
  5. Thanks for the answers!
     
  6. There is also a Super-Komura 50mm f/3.5 lens, one on eBay (170112432893) right now. Looks like it needs a diaphragm cleaning. If you have an affordable local repair person, that might wind up a good deal.
     
  7. I have the 45mm f/4.5 Super Komura. In case you see one for sale, you should know that
    they are really heavy, about 900gr. It does a good job and one of it's main attractions for me
    is that it will close focus to about
    8".
