oh shi...just noticed youre from tokyo. Are vintage lenses easy to come by around there? Ill be there for 5 months in starting on Oct to work so i figure I might shop around for some deals.

Depends... yes, and no. In the shops, they're around, but prices can be all over the place. If you have the option of online shopping, it's much better. There is one chain, for example, that has small shops all over. There are some competitively priced items, but low stock. If they have something you want listed online at a shop out of the region, they will ship close by so you can check it out before purchasing. Just got a film range finder that way.

It's been 20 years since I was there, but back then there were many small mom 'n pop thrift ("recycle") shops that are fun to search through for old "stuff"....

Just like w/ the rest of the world, the internet has more or less killed brick & mortar here.

Within the past few months I got myself a Helios 44/2 (58mm) lens, about £25 used, really love it, produces beautiful images on my EOS 5D.

I would like to try one of these on my 5D Classic/I DSLR, but don't understand how the adapters work. Is one of these (http://www.ebay.com …Tubes&hash=item​564977ce1b (external link)) inexpensive adapter rings all I would need for that Helios 44/2 to attach perfectly to my 5D for manual focusing? If so, is it simple to attach, or would I have to do some filing, etc. on it?

Also, would that same lens adapter mount work for attaching a Yashica ML 50mm 1.7 to my 5D? Thanks.

I don't see any mention of this lens anywhere on this site: Tamron 13A 24-48mm f3.5-3.8

And not a lot elsewhere either.

That should work fine. There are also ones with focus confirm chips:

I think the Yashica ML uses the Contax/Yashica (C/Y) mount. You'll need a different adapter.

Hello, I am interested in the Helios lens ( i know there are few - 44-2, 40-2... as well as new production) but I have a couple of questions.

1. Is anyone using it on a crop sensor - Fyi - I have a 60d
2. best place to find one?
3. any difference in the old vs. reproduction 2013 models

thanks in advance
Mike

1. I actually prefer my 44-4 on the EOS-M over my 6D

2. It depends on where you live, if in the US, ebay.
3. I know for the 44 model the 44-2 has a different optical formula from the rest... I'm not sure beyond that.

Thanks for the reply. Nice shots (checked your flicker acct) I will look on ebay and see what I can find.
I'm also wondering if people are using the adapter with AF confirm

Are you by chance in DE?

I use focus confirm adapters with most of my lenses, I think they're fantastic, though I've heard there are some shotty ones out there. I'm actually in MD, so not far ;)

Ok, thanks again. Do you know the names/makers of the "good" ones?

Ok, i saw the Dewey Beach photos. I grew up some in Dover,DE. Used to go the all of beaches all the time. I have friend that lives in Rehobeth now wanting to get into photography. It's definitely a picture worthy area.

Thanks Astro. Do you know which, or have a link to the correct adapter (with focus confirmation) that I would need to be able to use the Yashica ML on my 5D?

I'm pretty sure this is the one I have for some old contax lens on 5D:

http://www.ebay.ca …Tubes&hash=item​1c2bab90d1 (external link)

The seller has many such adapters. The EMF ones allow you to set the EXIF data
for focal length and max aperture. (I haven't bothered though.)

Some lenses have compatibility issues on the 5D. (The ML 50/1.7 seems ok.) This list is very useful:

Cheers.
