  4. Hello, I enjoyed a lot your article. Thank you!
    Can you share where did you buy Robot to M39 adapter?

    I have several robots + lenses.
    Chrome Xenon 40mm 1.9.
    Xenogon 30 3.5
    Radionar 38 3.5
    Tele Xenar 75 3.8
    Xenon worked well on My Nikon 1 with home made Heath Robinson adapter.

    the adapter above is no longer for sale.
    Aliexpress also have none.
    Maybe I will just get an E mount adapter to robot?
    Have you tried Paxette lenses on the A7?

    Viktor: Very interesting article. I wonder if you might be able to help me. I have inherited a Robot Vollautomat Star II (made in the mid-1950s) from my father (SN L 16XXXX). It still works and I have taken some nice pictures with it. It has a Schneider-Kreuznach f/1.9 40 mm lens (SN 629XXXX). Can you tell me what size of screw-in filters this lens accepts. I know that 34mm, 37mm, & 39mm filters do not work. The 37mm filter seems close. Is it possible that the type/size of the lens threads do not match threads of our modern filters? Thanks for any help you may offer. GBP
