Coupling to Rangefinder
Lens Coupling for all Rangefinder 5x4 Cameras
Coupling charge (per lens)
To couple a lens to the rangefinder we need to have the lens and camera body. The cam is engraved with the serial number of the lens and is matched to the body. If you have a used cam of the same focal length it is usually possible to also re cut the cam.

Coupling work for Technika 6x9 /23 cameras is also possible.
