Re: Canon 50D with Vivitar 135mm ƒ/2.8

The one that has the marks in the coating works better than the one that has no marks, not much, but enough to see the difference wide open. It's an M42 mount so I now use it with one of these adapters and it allows much closer focusing. But I see the price went up $11 since I bought mine. But I may have purchased mine on Amazon.

I have a similar adapter, a Pixco, for my a6000 but that camera is away being repaid so I'm stuck with the old Canon 50D (and not really enjoying it!). But I have had some great fun with that adapter and the Sonnar and expect to have some fun with the Vivitar once the Sony is back
