Threading question: any camera lens thread compatible with C/CS Mount Lenses?

    I'm not concerned with back focal length - I'm just looking for body
    caps for C or CS-Mount cameras! All the body caps I find are for Canon
    EOS, or Leica M, or ....

    Are any of these threads 1" x 32 TPI (the standard for C and CS-Mount

    Thanks, and any pointers or information will be useful. I didn't know
    what usenet to post this to. I figured camera people may be familar
    with all the thread sizes and pitch?

    Thanks Charles. I stumbled upon that link as well before posting here.
    Unfortunately, I'll need to keep re-buying these body caps so I would
    like to have a more permanent source than some weird email address
    (???) from 2 years ago. I'll try and contact that
    address regardless. It would be great if there is some company or
    lense type that has the same threading a C/CS Mount.

  4. Forgoive my laziness and poor memory, but isn't C-mount that small one
    used on video camera lenses? If it is, just go visit any microscope-y
    or lab supplies sort of shop, as that mount is particularly common in
    microscopy circles for attaching video cameras..

  5. If it really is the same mount as the C-mount found on microscopes,
    Edmund Optics sells all sorts of stuff along those lines; I'd guess that
    screw-on caps would be in their inventory.

    Yes, C-mount and CS mount both use the same threads. The only
    difference is in the back focal distance. A cap for either should work
    on either type of lens.
