Hi all, in next two weeks I will obtain one or maybe even two Pentaflex 16 cameras. I know that both of them have standard set of 3 lenses for their turrets, one of them has one more lens probably some kind of zoom, nut what I need is a macro lens so i want to find it. And there comes the question, what kind of mounting is used in lenses that suits for Pentaflex 16 camera?

I believe the lens mount is it's own. Pentovar zoom(rear element of the lens can be changed, so it can be used as 15-60mm or as 30-120mm) is good and so are the carl zeiss jena primes(quite fast too). I haven't heard any other lenses for it.

btw. what a great camera!

do you know where I can convert it to super 16 and if all original lenses cover full frame after s16 conversion?

The gate only? If you are handy, you could try it by yourself.
I think all but 12mm will cover super-16.
