Well that sux, of course there had to be some reasonable explanation, but I wanted something to gripe at Cannon about, I love them, though. Wouldn't ever use any other DSLR.

Still not sure how I can buy the M42 lenses so cheap and they have 28mm 1.8 lenses, manual focus, how do they work and why couldn't cannon do something along those lines? Can i get them simply because they are old and used, but they still have the same complexoptics and such?

well, have a look at the manual Samyang lenses
