Hey all
Am looking to get a 28mm 2.8 Chinon lens. Question: do all Chinons fit on the K- mount. Seller couldn't tell me.
Does anybody know anything about this lens?(sorry, no pics, I know). It says super multi-coated and the specs, nothing else.

Older Chinons are with M42 thread (usable with M42->K adapter) and newer are K-mount lenses. I've seen a few different versions. I had a K-mount 2.8/28mm like this:

I liked it a lot and have been looking for a new one ever since I sold it.

Thanks, good to know you liked it - I'll get the lens then. Actually I just wanted to know if Chinon made lens for other mounts (besides the M42, which it isn't). So I guess that's been clarified.

The only Chinons that won't work will be the Chinon AF lenses. As previously mentioned, they were m42 and went to K-mount. If that's the lens I think it is, it will be a pretty good 28mm.
