Can i bring this thread back
Here are my contributions with the CZ Jena MC Sonnar 135mm f3.5 ...
Very cool shoots! I have Russian version of this beautiful lens which is Jupiter-37A 135mm/3.5 (btw, my version is not MC version, but there is another copy which has MC special coating and what i know, it's really hard to find MC version).

richard64, i too had a Pentacon 50mm 1.8 with non non working blades. I wanted to buy another one, but i've checked it and also had this problem, so it should be very very common!

Hi Guys, I ve been looking to fill a few prime spots with old srew mount glass . Recently bought a chinon camera with 50/1.8 and 135/2.8 lenses assuming that it was chinon glass. Box arived today only to find that the lenses were made by Carenar. Has anyone even heard of this company? I'm assuming (there I go with that assume thing again)that these lenses are ahhhhh junk. would appreciate any insights.

Carenar! That sounds like an off-brand if there ever was one. They might be junk or they might be pretty good. Give them a try and post the pictures here or on the off-brand thread

A sharp shinned hawk looking for a snack at our bird feeder. It waited around long enough for me to unpack my Soligor 400mm f/6.3 and get it mounted so that I could shoot through the kitchen window.

Went out today with three primes but ended up just using my Flektogon 35/2.4. It was a grey day so all were shot handheld at ISO800 at apertures around f5.6

Since the big switch to Canon this past summer, I'm moving towards experimenting with m42 lenses again. Just this week, I picked up a Vivitar 35/2.8 (Tokina-made) lens for $15 and I've got a m42 to EOS adapter (with focus confirm chip) coming. If ya'll don't mind the fact that I'll be using the Canon, I'd like to post some images once the adapter ring comes and I get a chance to use everything. I'm looking forward to some good cheap fun.

Heck no. It will give us a chance to re-convert you to Pentax.
