    I have a Tamron 105 mm in an FD mount. Its so old it still has the old BBAR name engraved on the barrel. However it is a very light, sharp and contrasty lens.

    i just had a look at what KEH has on offer under pentax screwmount and, man, they ARE EXPENSIVE!!!!!!! I'm beginning to wonder whether this is such a good idea...... <G> and who was the daddy warbucks (not this very knowledgable list of course) who told me that pentax screwmounts were as cheap as chips! maybe i might make up an alternative non pentax list and try and give my poor suffering cc a bit of a break.....

    They were, in both the K and M series.

    Wayne - screwmount is inexpensive from local buys. KEH charges what they're worth.

    Is Leica screwmount the same as M42?

    Pardon my ignorance, but is the Leica screw-mount compatible with the Asahi-Pentax M42 mount: are the lenses interchangeable?

    Most of the Carl Zeiss Jena are worth checking too. I had a 50mm f/2.8 Tessar that really had a nice look, and I keep chastising myself for selling it. The 135mm Sonnar would probably be very cheap (nobody seems to like 135mm).[QUOTE]


    I have a CZJ 24mm PKA-mount, and it is sooo sharp. (It has a minimum focusing distance of around 9 inches -almost don't need a Macro lens). Also a 28-220 zoom in Olympus OM mount, it gives a lovely rendition. Unfortunatley, the build quality is not as good as either the Takumars or the Zuikos (some plastic bits where there should be metal, like the stop-down and lens-release buttons), athough the IQ is pretty good and the focus & zoom rings very smooth.

    So, any time I come across anything by CZJ, I'll be looking closely at it.

    (They are not actually manufactured in Germany, but "under licence" in Japan. The Lord alone knows who made them!

    that's true, the only way you can find a bargain at KEH is to take a punt on their ratings system.....grin

    oh and from what i have read the leica screwmount is a different thread to the M42

    Im this case, your ignorance is rather charming.

    Leica Thread Mount is 39mm as opposed to the M42 series. Difference besides the thread itself is the mechanism of the lens. Rangefinders have a different way of telegraphing their focus.

    And no, they are not interchangeable.
