Re: canon 5d mark 2 lenses and M42 adaptor

I have my adaptor arriving soon, thanks to your advice on here.

The lenses I have to use on it are:

Super Takumar 28mm f3.5

Super Multi Coated Takumar 35mm F3.5

SMC Takumar 55mm f1.8

Super Multi Coated Takumar 135mm F3.5

I suspect they would all work on the 20d, as the mirror is further back. I do not think that the first two would work on the 5d mark2, but the other two should. I have checked on google and cannot get a definitive answer. The list on suggests they should but does not mention them specifically.

Can anyone enlighten me on this matter with these four lenses?

Many thanks,
