If you're in Latvia, part of the FSU (former Soviet Union), you have have a very good chance of finding a Mir24 at a flea/vintage market or pawn shop or any camera shop locally that has a used counter.

Hey everyone, if you are in search for adapters but don't know which one to get, I suggest looking at KAWA MALL on ebay. I bought a Nikon to eos and just recently an M42 to eos and both came in the mail supprisingly fast. The Nikon to eos adapter works great. I'm able to detach it from the lens with no problem. The M42 I haven't gotten a chance to test yet. Still wating on my Heilos 44m. Which I bought for a whopping $37.

Since the first time I wrote on this thread I bought:

Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 & Canon 18-55mm kit (not vintage but importand lenses)
Helios 44m
Nikon 24mm f2 non ai
Zenitar 16mm f2.8 fisheye (can't get it to focus to infinity but working on it)
Pentacon 135mm f2.8 "Bokeh monster" (this one has not arrived yet but it has 15 blades aperture and I really want to see what it can do)

I'm gonna need an olympus 50mm f1.4 and I'm ready to shoot!

But NO adaptor have arrived yet so Helios, Nikon and Pentacon have no way to go on my camera yet :-(

I will post videos and my top 4 when I can (that is soon).

Nothing like that springs to mind :/

Those that i knew are all gone .



However the guy from ebay gave me a Tracking number.

I traced trough track-trace and some info about the purchase did show up.

How ever i could not make extract any info from that about when my Lens will be here.

Maybe i can track my purchase trough other sites which may give me more detailed info?

Its EMS .

It might just be your country's border/custom services. I had a package from the Far East held up at customs for almost 3 weeks, it was just released yesterday.. I usually get my items in 10 days or less.

You ust might be right.

This is my first item shipped form Russia. And today i traced the package again, and its location has changed from Kirov to Moscow.


And i bought the item on October the 8th, and as it seams they dispatched the item only on 23rd.

It took me about a month to get my Mir24s and Helios 44s, which all came from Russia and the former Soviet Union areas.

After 31 days my Mir 24N(H) is finally here. :)

Also got my Nikon to EoS adapter, but the problem is , i can't get the lens on the Camera.


EDIT: All good now, the adapter was screwed on wrong. :)

Good to hear Gustavs!

I just purchased a Tokina RMC 17mm but its a Minolta MD mount. I am still waiting to hear back from anyone who knows a good adapter. I have read that it is difficult to find a good one that allows you to focus to infinity..

Hi Terry,

The Minolta to EOS adapters that allow for infinity focus have glass optics which lower the amount of light reaching the sensor and can lessen the image quality. The reason is that the Minolta spec, like older Canon manual focus lenses, have a lens-to-mirror distance that is less than the EOS specification - the back of the Minolta lens goes too far into the body to allow for the mirror to go up and also doesn't allow the correct distance between the glass and the sensor to enable infinity focussing. There are conversions available for some Canon and Minolta manual focus lenses. The back of the lens is disassembled and a Canon EF mount is permanently attached. You can see on this page which lenses need optics in the adapters and which don't, requiring only a metal spacer:

fungus?

Hi... it's been a while now since I caught the microb of vintage lenses but today a pentacon 135mm f2.8 (amazing lense you should try it) that just arrived I think it has fungus on the rear element.
I'm getting ichy just by watching it :-))))
Please check the picture and tell me if I am right...

It is not visible on the footage though.. I'll post some later.
Thanks!

To be honest its hard to tell from such a small pic. You should zoom in with max focus on that part.

But from my pow it looks as if some sort of powder .

Im actualy amazed how anything can get into the lens. :)

Fungus

This is the zoomed version....
It's a bit out of focus but a search I did in google I found similar erosion on other lenses that was caused by fungus...
