  3. This is kind of a silly post, I'm just reporting a finding. I'm adapting m42 lenses to my a6500, and had the "brilliant" idea of using a chipped Fotodiox m42 to Canon EF adapter and then putting that on a Commlite EF to E adapter. This way I can program the chip to report the focal length (100mm) and have the a6500 automatically use the correct Optical Steady Shot setting. But even though the EXIF data reports 100mm in my raw files, the OSS does not kick in at all, unless I put the OSS adjustment on manual. Strange... I swapped the Commlite for a Vello "Accelerator" focal-reducing
  4. I got this Pentacon auto 2.8/135 MC (M42) literally for $10 and came with a Praktica body and a Tessar 2.8/50 Carl Zeiss Jena DDR. It is in almost new condition cosmetically but the focus ring is very stiff and there is a little "play" between the mount and the aperture ring, I figure both problems are probably fixable. I bought a Novoflex M42 adapter for it. For a telephoto, it is very compact and it is built like a tank plus it has an integrated hood. I walked around the neighbourhoods this weekend a took a few shots. I was really surprised by the results. Focus was a bit hard to do wide
  5. I recently purchased this lens Meyer Optik 135mm 2.8 claimed to be in M42 mount. So I purchased a m42 convertor from K&F concept on amazon. However, it seems I cannot make it fit. Can anyone tell me the correct adapter to use? I was able to remove some rings also. Attached are the pictures of the mount. Thanks.
