With my recently aquired Nikon SP and Kiev 4 (both Contax RF mount) i finally was able to see if the Panflex 5522/23 reflex housing would fit on either of them (wich it should) and indeed it did.
Now the problem is even though the panflex fits, i haven't got any lenses for it. These lenses can be found but are very expensive and i'm really not interested in using a panflex set-up, it would be nice though for display purpouses...
Still i'm even not sure if this panflex is solely usable with bellows and lens head or if it is suitable for lenses with focussing helicoid but with index to film distances suitable for using them on the panflex. As i have seen there are diffrent sorts of these mirrorboxes available for contax rangefinders but with the little information i could find it seems to me there are diffrent mirrorboxes for either tele or macro work.
