I bought a 90mm Mamiya-Sekor witht the Seikosha-S shutter from ebay and it is such a beautiful lens. Shutter is very very nice too. So, I mounted it on a 2X3 Pacemaker board for my Crown. Was this lens ever used on the Graphic cameras? Is 90mm too wide angle for the 2X3? Can it be used on my 4X5 Crown Graphic? If not for the Grahic cameras, then what was this lens made for?

Thanks!

1) not sold by Graflex.

2) will cover 2x3, so you can use it on a 2x3 Graphic.

3) won't cover 4x5.

4) Mamiya Press

What was the mounting or board like? I've been wondering if I can use one of the Mamimya press WA's on my Century, but they seem to be in a proprietary lens mount.

Anyone tried to mount them to a Graphic 2X3 board?

thanks.

I have mounted this Mamiya lens on a 2X3 board for my Pacemaker Crown. Lens fits on there fine, but the way the shutter works, I'm afraid I cannot use the body mounted trip lever. Images on the ground glass seem quite clear... crystal clear. *S*
