2. Jupiter 9 85mm F2
3. Jupiter 135mm F3.5
4. Mir 1V 38mm F2.8

Thanks :) Yes these are M42 mount. These are just first time shots and I'm trying to get used to the manual side of shooting but it certainly is old school fun :)

No, not yet, but I've put one on order to put to the test. Only manual so far...

I find the AF chip somehow useful. I am using the contax to eos one.

Anyway, enjoy the lenses.

wow!!! nice shots sir rod and very beautiful flowers and of course the woman (wife?) hehe... how do you find the manual focus?

I think its nice if you have the split circle... to be able to aid in your manual focusing...

now I see why you abandoned the tamron 18-270mm thread hahahaa this is much more fun.

well judging by the red poppies, area rugs on the line, the garages that say no parking in Russian and the girl with straight bangs, you are currently somewhere in the former USSR :-)

I dont recognize those arches though... so where exactly are you?

I have some of those old lenses too that I have bought locally here in Sevastopol (with old camera bodies)... but never bothered to adapt them... they just sit on the shelf :-(
