IKOFLEX lens swap.

Post by anthonym-3 » Sat Mar 06, 2021 1:50 pm

I have two IKOFLEX 1 and 1a both have 75mm 3.5 NOVAR. The 1a is non functioning and has better coating. Will swapping the taking lenses front elements cause focus issues?

With a triplet, you should be OK, although you would need to reset infinity focus. The rear element screws into the back of the shutter assembly, so you should be able to swap all of the elements. However, you'll likely need to reset infinity focus.

A notorious Mr Elek published his method here:

It works perfectly

It is of no use as my cameras are IKOFLEX.
