    Why yes, yes there is. The chipped mounts give focus confirmation, but you either have to buy lots of different mounts with different focal lengths or use one of the kludgy multi-focal length chips. Personally I don't bother with a chipped adapter and just use a plain one.

    There are also adapters to mount M42 lenses on Canon EOS 35mm cameras. I use one of these with a Rebel K2 and some Super-Takumars.

    You can also use M42 lenses on Rolleiflex SLRs with an adapter, keeping the auto-diaphragm mechanism.

    Unfortunately 1/2000 practically limits you to the 3003 model: not exactly light and compact, but hey, you get motorized interchangeable film magazines (a' la Hasselblad), 2 viewfinders, 3 shutter buttons and one of the most unique 35mm SLRs ever made...

    It's not an ST801, then.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    From the description linked to, it says that Pentax M42 lenses may not be able to focus to infinity on the ST801 body. Otherwise, I like the look of it quite a lot. What are your experiences with that? I'd be using metal focus ring SMC Takumar lenses with it.

    An open aperture feature makes the M42 mount non standard and when using a non Fuji lens you may cause difficulties to focus infinity and what is worse the lens could stuck on the camera.
    Sometimes I post my photos on flickr.
    Sometimes I update my tumblr.

    There is the rare Mamiya 2000 DTL. It was one of the few cameras to have a horizontally traveling cloth focal plane shutter with a top speed of 1/2000. The other similar cameras which come to mind are the Olympus OM4 series models. In some cases an M42 lens will fit another camera with an adapter but in the case of Nikon or Olympus, you will not have correct infinity focus. The problem with using adapters is that you lose auto diaphragm function. The Mamiya P adapter for the Auto XTL/Auto X1000 allows for stop down metering but retains auto diaphragm function. The top shutter speed of these Mamiyas is 1/1000. If auto diaphragm function is not critical then you can buy a Cosina-made Vivitar K mount camera with a top speed of 1/2000 and use an adapter.

    I once breifly had a ST801 and had trouble mounting *some* East & West German M42 lenses on it.
    Truth be said, I had the same trouble with Pentax ES' and also the Spotmatic F...

    Hi lxdude, You are right!! Sorry, I stand corrected! I had St 801 before and it's gone now. It's St705 with 1/1500s.
    People need to be careful when mounting SMC Takumars on Fuji body. Small pin for locking A/M aperture switch on lens body will jam in phillips screw head holes that hold body's lens mount. Very painful operation to free them out. Late Fuji M42 lenses will not properly mount on Spotmatic's due to tab (for transferring Iris value to TTL meter) protruding from the lens body. Very easy to file out if you don't mind loosing full aperture TTL with Fujica's.

    The mounting problem I has was with S-M-C-T and SMC Takumars on a mamiya 500 DTL. The tab on the back of the lenses would get stuck in the holes in the front of the mount. Screws went through the holes to hold the mount to the camera and their heads were just below the screw hole openings. This caused me to look for older Super Takumar and Vivitar lenses.
