Can anyone tell me why this lens doesn't require a focus ring?
I'm sure it has something to do with being an "objective lens" but I can't find any info in the AC manual or by searching the forums.

Thank you

It's in what's called barrel mount or that is to say just the basic lens housing with an aperure control ring. A focusing mount could be added to this or it could be used that way on a set of bellows or whatever. It's f2.0 not f20

Thanks Chuck,

So as it stands, where is the focus set?

Nowhere. It's just an optical group that can have whatever focusing configuration and lens mount you want put on it.
