also comes in M42 mount...


First let me say that this is a very well done, comprehnsive report. I applaud you for the time you have taken to do this. And you have shown, with your images in this thread, that the Zenitar 16mm can take some spectacular images. Thanks you for putting all of this together.

There is also a Zenitar 2.8 16mm fisheye - M42 mount (M42-K adapter required). In which case it can be used in the Av mode like any screwmount lens. Set AF/MF switrch to MF, select Av mode, select your aperture on the lens, focus, take picture. However, in extremely low light, you may have to open the aperture to focus then re-set the aperture to take the shot.

Note: For those that have the M42 lenses, you may want to go into the Custom Menu and select FI with S lens used, select #2 Available. S lens means screwmount lens. You can leave this at #2 at all time as it does not affect any other functions of the camera or other lenses.
