A moderately priced super wide for 645??

I saw this Carl Zeiss 20mm on Ebay. With a Pentacon 6-645 adapter this could be a SUPER wide option??? What do you think?

I don't see why not! Try, and let us know, it certainly beats the price of the Pentax 25mm!

I wouldn't expect the image quality to be all that great - especially considering the Carl Zeiss Biogon 38mm f/4.5 on the SWC - which is a lens design of similar vintage.

Warning: donŽt buy it, it is for a 35mm Pentacon Camera!!! NO Lens maker worldwide can produce a 20mm with only 67mm Filter Thread in this shape, measurement AND retrofocus design! Is physically NOT working!

Carl Zeiss Jena hat has several lines of lenses for Praktica (35mm) Pentacon (120) and for Large Format. This lens will definitly NOT fit on 645D, not with adaptor or other devices.

Regards

The Flektogon 20mm/ 2.8 is for a 35mm Camera with TM (M42) like Praktica etc. It is _not_ for a PentaconSix (P6) MF Camera. Historically seen this 20mm Carl Zeiss Flektogon was in the early sixties the first retrofocus 20/21mm superwide for SLRs A list of all P6 lenses youŽll find here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-medium-format-645-6x7-645d/108778-...cessories.html
