    The M42 mount is one of the best camera mounts to play with lenses on. This site: http://m42.artlimited.net/index.php lists nearly 500 different M42 mount lenses.

    The ones I would start with are the Asahi Super Takumar and SMC lenses in 28mm and 50mm

    The 50mm 1.4 is one of the legendary "radioactive lenses" which has its own page at the Oak Ridge national labs site: http://www.orau.org/ptp/collection/c...cameralens.htm

    The lens has a noticeable color shift to orange in the glass (mine at least does) but takes the most amazing shots and has the huge f1.4 aperture.

    Don't listen to the Poo-pooers, and go spend a couple $20s on eBay and find some cool glass.

    Thanks for the feedback, it's all helpful and as I don't need to fill out a system all at once, I can wait until just the right lens comes along, especially the Asahi offerings.

    I also like the idea of some Tamron Adaptall lenses as I already have this adapter in Canon FD, though I don't have any of the lenses. My only experience with the Vivitar Series One was a positive one, as I had the first version in a FD mount when new and was always happy with the images it gave with color slide films.

    Cheers
