easy tokina conversion.

if you can get your hands on a tokina 500mm mirror lens then converting it to pk could not be simpler,and its reversible,simply unscrew chromed mount,and fit cheap m42-pk mount(3),just four drill holes..being a fixed f8.its very easy and good quality morror for cheap,can only speak for md fit that cost me about 40.works a treat.

OP says "md fit", which is Minolta MD, or Minolta SR if you want (different versions of the same mount, as KA, KAF, KAF2 etc., of which the MD version is the most used).

hope pics load,first pic is original minolta fit mount which has m/xg on it.Just four screws removed,lift out.Then found out a old m42 -pk mount the cheap ones that dont work at infinity anyway and drilled and fitted .and it looks as if focal length is about correct as it will focus beyond infinity,and was managing to focus inside the lounge with x2 converter fitted(1000mm).so i,m impressed. I am not very skilled at this kind of thing,but even i could manage this and luck would have it its worked.must be a few of these md mirrors sitting unused,maybe will give them new lease of life.Out of curiosity does anyone know if this mount fits sony dslrs.
