Hi all,

I was looking at this guy's 10 fave lenses and he uses a Russian projection lens that opens to f1.2 and has a lot of 'character'.

There's loads of them adapted to m42 on ebay and they aren't too expensive. Are they likely to focus to infinity on a Canon M camera? I understand they won't work on FF.

Any other pitfalls I need to be aware of?


Since I don't use Canon bodies or that lens, I can only speak in general terms, but since there are m42 to EF-M adapters that have infinity I don't see any problems with a lens converted to M42 and adapted to M, as long as it's been converted for proper register.

Going by the guys web pages (translated in-browser from hungarian so there are definitely parts that made less sense to me) the lens may not quite cover the sensor completely, but it should still be useable.
