Have come across this lens recently and have searched for hours on the net and can't find another one like it! It's a Som Berthiot Paris Cinor 1.9 35mm Bto2 77280. Does anyone know about this lens? I'm presuming it's for a Bolex, but have checked the Bolex Collectors site and can't find it listed in thier list of 50's and 60's Berthiot lenses. If anyone could share thier knowledge about this or alternatively share any related links to help me track this lens down, it would be greatly appreciated. Seeing as I have found it impossible to find another one or even info on the lens itself, it's really roused my curiosity.
cheers pete

Thanks for that link, I did notice that ebay auction, but my lens is much older style than the one pictured, it also has distincly different coupling and mount, as well as distincly different grip texture on the focusing and aperature rings?

Can you post some pictures of it?

Are you wanting to USE it for a film, or just trying to estimate its value?
