Loving my Chinon… And a question:)

Does anyone else here happen to own the Auto Chinon 200mm f3.5? I got mine last week, and the M42 adapter it required duly got stuck… and I had to pay another £30 on top of the £30 I payed last week for a genuine pentax adapter… (yes, £60 for an M42 adapter, no it wasn't made of solid gold) But anyway. It's a great lens, lovely bokeh and light, so sharp at f5.6 to f8, and it only cost me a tenner! I love it

Now, for the question…

A couple of months ago I stumbled across a french website detailing every lens for Pentax mount ever made. The only two bits I remembered from the URL link were compatibile-en. Does anyone know the full link, or where I can find the site. I've seen it mentioned here once.

Thanks a lot

M42 lenses on Pentax K

Good quality adapters - right price.

I've got a 300 5.6 Chinon, a cheap looking plastic bodied thing, which is surprisingly good optically. I like it a lot, maybe it's the same series and manufacturer ?
