Pentakon 135 Back focus


Recommended Posts

Hi! Does anybody know the back focus distance of the Pentakon 135mm f/2.8. It should be longer than Canon's i think.

I want to shoot with my Atik 4000M but all the Canon lenses have a BF distance of 44mm, so I can't use the filter wheel.

The Pentacon has a 45.46 backfocus and the Atik mounting face to sensor distance is 18.0mm. The Pentacon M42 thread is NOT compatible with the M42 'T' thread standard so you will need to factor in the depth of a Pentacon M42 to 'T' thread adaptor plus the total depth of your filter wheel. The available space is only 27.46mm so your filter wheel and all adaptors will need to be this length or less.
