Subject: RE: [Leica] Help with lens for Valoy enlarger

I suspect this 'small bayonet fitting' is designed for what the collapsible 
Elmar has, and how that lens (from the camera) could be then used on the 
enlarger. The bayonet end of the lens tube is mounted directly onto the 
focusing ring instead of making it rigid first in its own focusing mount.
As suggested elsewhere, you might find that the mount comes off in that its 
an attachment, if it is fixed you could consider investing in a good 
condition Elmar. A friend of mine produces superb pictures with his. 
Resolution is spellbinding.

Subject:	[Leica] Help with lens for Valoy enlarger

I have an old Valoy enlarger that came without a lens.  I have had problems 
finding a lens to attach to it. It takes a small bayonet fitting that I can 
not match with a lens.  This fitting is not the same as the m-mount or
r-mount.  Is there and adapter that I can obtain that allows me to use 39mm 
ltm lenses?  If so, how can I obtain one?
