Praktica lenses for nikon?

I have posted previously trying to find out about the compatibility of these lenses, and i think i remember them possibly being compatible with pentax...

iv also heard there is an adaptor out there making them work with Nikons, only you looses the ability to focus to sideways 8

These are being sold on ebay by a German friend of mine and im interested in the 3 fixed lengths

carenar f=50mm 1:2.8
ALFO Tele auto f=135mm 1:2.8
ALFO Weitwinkel auto f=35mm 1:2,8
carenar Auto Zoom f=85-210mm 1:4,5

Ok first off has anyone here tried something like this?
What exactly are the limits of the focus range?
Fully manual yes?

I would perhaps try them on the camera his selling with them but its film.. doesn’t bother me but finding someone to process the film with out f* ing it up is a pain over here! (thus what broke my sister into digital)

im not sure they are currently very cheep.. what do you think about all this?
