The Pentax Takumar versions (SMC, Super, Super Multi Coated) are my favorite. The 50 f1.4 can be had around $50. Make sure you know if you're getting a Pentak K mount or M42 mount so you know what adapter you need.

Second choice would be the Minolta 50 f1.4. Then a Canon FD or Nikon.

The cheap $10 eBay adapters work fine for these.

This got me concerned,as I am getting one of these two lenses and want to make sure I get correct adapter

1) Pentax Takumar 50 f1.4 but cant see which mount is it and which adapter should I order out of these two. pl assist

and this one does confirm it is 42mm mount but lot of items in ebay dont even say their mount K or 42

2) and would this adapter work for Minolta Rokkor 50 f1.4 ?
