    Adapted Please talk me out of a Schneider Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f1.8 (Rollei QBM mount)

    For my own peace of mind....:ROFLMAO: This lens It's been in my head for over a month. I go back and forth on picking one up. The only reason against, is getting an adapter that mounts it to my Canon EF-M. There is one...

    Adapted Thrifty Tokina

    Found a lens at a thrift shop the other day. A black pouch catches my eye, with white lettering - “Tokina”. Take a peak inside, a 135mm 2.8 looks back. Why not, the price was right, and I haven’t challenged myself enough with manual lenses. So I come home late, can’t wait until the next day...

    Manual Lens f1.2; Adapted vintage or New Tech?

    Let's get this out of the way: I suffer from LBA (Lens Buying Affliction, in case I buggered up the acronym...). I can find something to appreciate from most any lens, and will shoot at least once with almost anything. I have a real affinity for the giant glass that shows off from old...

    Adapted 35mm f0.4 - with flexible mount

    Adapted Adapted lenses, any make, for any camera

    I haven't seen a general thread for any adapted lens. Here are a couple of things shot with the Sony a7ii using an old Zuiko 75-150 f4 (one of my favorite zooms for decades), with which the river stone with fossilized ferns was shot, and the Konica Hexanon 40mm f1.8, which has become the...

    Lens AF-S NIKKOR 18-200MM 1 3.5-5.6 G ED

    I bought this lens on the recommendation of Mr. Rockwell, Ken. I wanted an lens with a wide range. Mr. Rockwell raved about this lens on his review board. I have this lens and it's giving me a hard time. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. What is the sweet spot? ie f5.6-f9? When should I use...

    Adapted Mirror / Reflex lenses

    A few years ago I came across the idea of using a Nikon 500/8 reflex/mirror lens as a cheaper alternative to an expensive autofocus 500mm lens. Since I wasn't going to be using it a LOT, it did not make sense to spend $$,$$$ on a "modern" lens. Turned out that the Nikon 500/8, even after 40...

    Feedback A main topic for adapted lenses, please?

    Can we, please, have a main topic on Adapted lenses so that all brands\mounts can cave a source of information and to share images of\samples adapted lenses. Fragmentation of threads per lens for each brand can make it very time consuming to find the information one would like to find or add to...

    Pentax Adapting lenses on a Pentax DSLRs

    Despite the good results & prices of Pentax lenses, I've become a big fan of adapting lenses as well. Most of the time this is on one of my mirrorless cameras (Pentax Q, Panasonic MFT & Sony) but there are times when my SLRs work well too :) Here's one of my earliest adapted lenses, used on the...
