Have I mentioned I like this lens? Just got a P/K mount adapter to replace the M42 one that came with it. Now I can do open aperture metering and focus, Not that it makes the photos better but it makes the shot process a tad easier. Yes I used the green button!! LOL

It cost me $47 to buy one (brand new) but I finally got a K-mount TX interchangeable mount. Had a screw mount and was able to use it quite well but the K-mount is a little easier to use. Now I can buy any TX lens whether it comes in Canon Nikon Exacta Topcon Minolta or whatever and just attach the K-lens mount and get on with it.
Look here...http://books.google.com/books?id=GQE...esult#PPA11,M1

Lookin' for a T-4 mount right now.

Telephone generator works better...if no dynamite is handy! Just avoid aluminum boat with hand in water while cranking.....very nasty experience with that scenario.
