If I've got one of these Pan Cinor 17-85 lenses with the mount for the dog leg viewfinder, do I need the dog leg to make use of the lens or can I use it on a reflex camera and see the image through the camera's viewfinder?

Assuming it has a C mount you should be able to mount it on a reflex camera with a C mount, although you will be losing light through the lens reflex system.

Yea it's got a c-mount. I think I will wait it out until I can find a 17-85 compact though. thanks for the info.
