It's my first post on this forum so I'd like to say hello to everyone. Could you help me identify the mount of a lens I got from my friend? It's probably a C-mount lens - the thread is ~1 inch (25 mm) in diameter and it was used in a medical equipment. The brand and specification of the lens is as follows:
Carl Zeiss Planar 1,4/50 T* (made in Japan)
I was trying to google it but I haven't found any information regarding this lens for a C-mount. Zeiss website lists a similar looking Carl Zeiss Planar 1,4/50 T* for F-mount and M42x1-mount (under ZEISS Industrial Lenses - Classic Lenses). My lens doesn't seem to match as M42 & F-mount have a much wider thread diameter.
The next question is how could I use this lens? I know there are adapters available for C-mount but there is a question of coverage. I currently have a Samsung NX-mount camera as well as an old Canon APS-C DSLR but plan to buy a new gear soon anyway. It would be great if I could use this lens on the existing/future gear - what are your recommendations?
