Hi Knight67. Thanks for the nice comments.

45.5mm............Kodak like to be awkward don't they :roll:.

The Nikon 4T has a thread of 52mm, so you would need to attach a step down ring of 55mm-52mm on the end of your adapter.

Now, I may be wrong but, I thought it was never the best idea to attach a step down ring, could or most likely would cause vignetting, especially when using a tube adapter.

Someone will correct me if I am wrong .

So I would suggest instead that you consider the Nikon 6T. This has the same diopter of 2.9 and is essentially the same lens but with a bigger diameter and therefore a bigger thread of 62mm. For this you would need a 55mm-62mm step up ring. Step up rings cost from $6.95 to $ $19.95 here, http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...mp;Submit.y=12

The Nikon 6T costs about $15.00 more than the 4T.

As to how well it will work when on the end of your Kodak adapter I don't know. Might be an idea to ask Kodak.

Hope this helps.

Stevekin.

Hehe, the 4T looks interesting...right now I'm thinking of doing an experiment with my A200, which consists of stacking a Cl49-200 and a 500d...not sure if that will be a nice idea though.



Shame the Nikon CUL's are 52mm and not 58

The Nikon 6T has a 62mm thread. Same lens, 2.9 diopter, just larger diameter. See if that might fit into your stacking system.

It might, but then I'd have to resort into grabbing some new step rings. Who knows? I might get crazy and grab a Cl49-200, and in a fit of madness decide to get a 6T on top of that. I'm almost afraid to think of what the resulting IQ would be

Hi steve,

jeff stays for a short holiday in germany.
I managed to turn him around in a rapid photo session.
There seems to be some nose hair too!
Please don´t ask me what he´s sitting on!

Well he seems to be behaving himself and posing nicely for you Sven, that's a great shot .

Although with the nose hair I am a little disappointed he seems to be letting personal hygiene go a bit.

Speaking of which.........what is hesitting on ?

Steve.

well....
talking about hygiene!

Once upon a time there were some little blackbirds. They were very hungry and every now and then .....
And if they did not die, they are still wasting around.
