thinking i was bidding on a M200 i placed a bid on this lens and then realized it was a vivitar 200 f3.5. well $18 later i got the lens in M42 mount. ordered an adapter from B&H and got it today. went out for a few test shots to see what it would do. this lens is made by komine and i think i just might keep it. i'll have to see but it may be sharper than my M200 f4. did i just say that??? shot on the left is at f3.5, on the right is f8. sorry abot the blur on the f8 shot but i moved.

Sounds like a nice lens..I've had very good results with the old vivitars. Looks like the Gnome needs a beard wash! Any problems with the adapter?

no problems. it's a kalt from B&H

And since you unnecessarily seemed to see the need to say whatever.

Like anyone really needs to see an out of focus lawn gnome.
