Hello,

sometimes you find some Colcine 2x extenders from the UK.

Does anybody know, from which glass (canon, zeiss etc.) they were made and how is there quality ?

I had a Colcine extender that I used with my old T3 10-100 Zeiss many years ago. The quality was OK as long as you stopped down a couple of stops. Optex, which was a well known UK film & TV equipment supplier, used to sell them for use on professional 16mm & 35mm film cameras.

I don't know who manufactured them, I imagine it was a UK company, the design does look like a piece of Abakus kit and they used to make optical accessories for Optex to sell under their own name.
