Words of caution:

Not all lenses work without the mirror hitting the rear end of the lens at infinity focus. My Auto Takumar 35f/3.5 protruded a few thousands too far into the mouth of the beast and the mirror hit the housing around the rear element. I filed material off of the housing. You can also shim the lens on the screw mount with a circular piece of thick paper. That I found too fiddly, so I butchered my lens. My 50f/1.4 did not require any modification at all to work. Those are the only Takumars I have in M42 mount.

I think you posted about the Takumar 35mm f/3.5 before re how its rear protrudes far enough as to hit the mirror. I did read that post and it stopped me from buying one. If that was your post - thanks.
