Ben will have to advise if the ends are inter-changeable, I do not know.

Not to change the subject but I have found that I get more consistent exposure using M mode and pressing the green button on my K200, but I will switch back to Av and see what happens, it will definitely be easier to use.

Just another side note, I think my exposure was off on the gx-1l (ist-dl) because I have a china split focusing screen in it. I heard these will throw the exposure off on lenses slower than f4.0. I was off by about (-)2.5-3.0 stops with that camera.

I do also have a k200d, I could throw it on there and see if there is any difference from the k10 or k20?

Thanks, pls let us know the results, the exposure issue with the split screen is what has made me wait so long before ordering it

So I could pick up just the "T"-noflexor end with the glass in it and it would fit?
Yes, the lens heads are interchangeable - as are the camera mounts.

I picked one of these up in m42 mount with a k-mount adapter. Focus is super fast with the squeeze grip.......
I have bought a Novoflex Norflexar (the old model, not T-Norflexar) 40cm f5.6, the same model as Reknelb. It comes with a hood but no caps. I want to buy front cap and UV filter to protect the front element. Can you tell me what size of filter are you using on the 40cm/400mm head? I was told once it takes 77mm filter, but surely it is not. For I have tried to put on a 77mm and does not work! By measurement it seems more closer to either 74 or 75mm. Please advise.

Also what size of cap are you using for this 40cm f5.6 lens head? Thanks
