    Are you looking specifically for 135mm focal length? Writing on the front? I think most early shorter focal length Fuji lenses are in Seiko shutters, with a few exceptions. Later lenses and those requiring #3 size were in Copal shutters.

    Hmmm that explains why I see all these Seiko shutters on EBay. I never used a Seiko shutter how are they. I know they make great watches so they’re good with precision mechanisms. Frankly until this week, I didn’t know they made LF shutters.
    Ha lots to learn. Have yiu used these shutters made by Seiko? Tell me more!

    I’ve got 150mm Fuji lens with a Seiko shutter, nice running shutter, feels very well made, wouldn’t hesitate to buy another.

    The Seiko shutters are nice. There are lots of them floating around. The threads and spacing for #0 and #1 Seiko shutters are the same as Copal, Compur, Prontor.

    What focal length are you wanting?

    Thanks for the info on the thread spacing. That just saved me a lot of heartache. Wow!
