    Looking for a Mamiya SX lens with the adapter pin still on. Not the expensive collectible models just the basic. Either a 55 or 135 would work for me. I also live in Canada so shipping prices would be my biggest concern.

    WOW... nobody has one or knows somebody that does ? I must be getting old as 1976 when the camera and lens system was produced doesn't seem that long ago to me. But the dates don't lie.. OH YA bump.

    Good to know the "sunny 16" method of exposure as it looks like I will be lens less for my newly obtained toy. But I am still looking.

    May I ask what is your problem with the lens?

    The problem with my lenses is they are only the M-42 with no small tab that adjusts the meter to the correct f/stop. And by the looks of things there are very few available as most people have removed the tab so they can mount them on regular M-42 adapters.. They were made for several years on different types of Mamiya 35mm cameras.

    The lenses were made for the MSX or DSX models. They were in a wide range from 14-800 mm. As well as 90-230 mm zoom. And it looks as if I might have to pay for shipping from anywhere in NA. ;o)

    Stop your unrelenting searches gentlemen I found one. It is only the 50/2 but good enough for the test of my newly acquired MSX 1000. After I know how the camera performs I will be more comfortable with "sunny 16" on my other M-42 lenses.
