    If you like the idea of using a Industar lens on an M42 camera you might consider the 50/2.8 Industar 61 L/Z. I bought one on eBay from someone in Pskov, Russia. It took two tries at getting my my payment delivered and many months for the lens to arrive. It focuses down to about 1:3 and is a very decent performer. Years ago I had problems fitting S-M-C-T and SMC Takumars on a Mamiya 500DTL. The tab from the lenses would get stuck on the heads of the screws used to attach the mount to the body. My solution was to find Super Takumars and pre-S-M-C-T/SMC Vivitar lenses. I am now collecting Mamiya SX eqipment. Other M42 lenses will fit the SX bodies but will not lock into place with the click of the SX lenses. My SX collection includes an MSX500, a DSX 500, a 35/2.8, a 50/2, a 55/1.8, a 135/2.8 and a 200/3.5. I think I'll stop when I get a 28/2.8 and maybe a DSX1000.

    Appears the M42 mount isn't as universal as we were led to believe
