LENS SWAP Super Balars PL mount for COOKE series ii/iii PL

Recommended Posts



I am wondering if anyone is interesting is swapping like for like lenses.


I have 4 PL Mounted B&L Super Baltars in 20mm, 35mm, 50mm and 75mm all mint glass and almost mint housing (like very very close to mint housing).

I also have an unmounted 25mm that I can throw in.


I love the lenses but would like to switch them with Cooke Speed Panchro series iii and ii lenses of similar sizes. The any SP 25mm 18mm must be series iii as the series ii 18mm and 25mm were not as good (which is why they made those two lengths as series iii's).


So basically I am looking for 1st choice


25mm Series iii


32mm series ii


50mm series ii


75mm series ii.


but I could consider the 18mm instead of 25,, and 40 mm in place of 32.


let me know if anyone is interested.


I just shot the baltars on a 35mm film and can show the images. Amazing lenses but I am a Cooke guy at heart.

I have an 18III/25II(sorry)/50II/75II in Arri A mount which I could swap.

I also have a 40 which is in for cleaning & adjusting.

I could throw in a Les Bosher adapter for PL.

best wishes
