Condenser lenses - which and where to find in Germany?

Hi,

I'm - of course :) - currently working on my own 35mm adapter and I am searching for the right condenser lens and a place to buy them in Germany or somewhere else without to much costs to ship to Germany.

Of course I searched for German forums and websites, but condensers are 35mm-discussions are hard to find and since people on this forum are so specialized for this topic, I cant find a better solution than to ask here.

Is the size of the lens important? Which dioptrin should it have?
What is a good prize? Where should I buy it (preferably Germany)?

If you could help me I would owe you forever (although I wouldnt really know how to pay you back :)


Thanks,

Manuel

Happy to help.
Firstly, what camcorder are you using on the adapter?

Okay, so here's my setup (for now).

Sony DCR-TRV60E

TamronSP 1:2,8-3,8/35-80mm (the most light-intense lens I could find that could still zoom for a low prize)

Rotating groundglass (not yet build, perhaps some other technique)
