The Samyang/ Rokinon/ Bower/ Pro-optic/ Vivitar modern manual focus, manual aperture lenses don't require adapters, and they are quite inexpensive compared to other new lenses.

It is easy to make a cheap and good M42 to EF adapter, or an M42 to anything adapter. You can buy one adapter for each lens. The Nikon F to EF adapters vary in quality, and cheap ones fit loosely. At eighty bucks for a decent F mount adapter (Fotodiox Pro, has a leaf spring in the mount), it is less convenient, because one tends to move the adapter from lens to lens.
