I am looking for a wide angle adapter for my 10mm rx switar, I know that there is a 5,5mm designed for this lens but I have spied this adapter;

and was wondering whether this 4.4 adapter fits the 10mm also?

Hi Damien,

That adapter was designed to fit a super8 camera.
The threads are not the same as a Switar 10mm.
It might work if you can find a way to adapt it.
If the Aspheron is 49mm you can get a nice adapter from brentfinley.com

Cheers,
Jean-Louis

Hi Jean-Louis, the wide angles for the 10mm are quite expensive arent they?/ do you know if bolex released a wide angle lens proper for the bolex?/ i have never come across any...

Wont work ;) - just too small - if you just taped it on for instance it will vignette on a 10mm Switar
