    Reccomend me m42 glass!!!!

    Got a Sankyo Koki 135 f3.5 on a whim at a pawn shop for 10 bucks.....turns out it has a 16-blade aperture. Not bad, but it adapts wonderfully to my 5D digital and my EOS film system

    I had my eyes on some Carl Zeiss Jena glass, specifically the 50 2.8. What other diamonds in the rough am I looking for?

    You are in the right area as there are squillions of nice M42 lenses about. The CZ Tessar is quite good as are the Pancolor and Helios from the Zenits. If you want top class though, aim for any Super Takumar, especially the 50mm 1.4.

    No Super Tak 50mm f/1.4 on a 5D digital. The mirror will strike the lens.

    CZJ lenses are very good lenses.
    Flektogon 35mm F2.5 MC, Pancolar 50mm f1.8 MC and Sonnar 135mm f3.5 MC are known as Holy Trinity of Carl Zeiss Jena Lenses.
    Unfortunately some Pancolar MC will interfere with the EOS mirror.
    The Flektogon and the Sonnar have no issues.
    Don't bother with single coated silver/Zebra version of Flektogon or Pancolar - won't fit.

    There are also plenty of russian lenses with characters ... but you only asked for CZJ ...

    Check this site before you buy any M42 lenses...
    EOS 5D and Film cameras have similar mirror construction if not same.

    Those too, was looking at the Industar 50-2 f3.5, heard a lot of good reviews, always wanted to try some commie glass

    I've also heard very good things about the Tair-11.

    105/2.8 Super Takumar. The 35/2 is something too, but big.

    Apparently any m42 glass I get has to be preset aperture and not auto like later m42, unless there is a way around this?
