Re: Take a Macro lens!

fd or minolta glass is a great way to start with adapted lenses, someone said to stick with one or two mounts, and that is a very good idea. I just learned the hard way that not all "universal" screw mounts are compatible with adapters. Mamiya-Sekor has a m42 mount with not only an auto-aperture pin but also a recessed mount. This means I need tp modify the lenses AND a custom mount to mount even though it screws into the chinese m42 adaptor.

Fortunately it was a $35 craiglist buy of someone's old kit, and I got a great sears 135mm f2.8 m42 and a great m42 fujinon 28mm as well as a very nice hard leather case in mint condition. Now I know why great quality glass from Mamiya-Sekor goes for dirt cheap on ebay...
