this lens never centered on the top like my Practica camera with a Pentacon lens, rather it stalled at the 3 o clock position on the K20D body – hard to change and read f-stops.
this is actually rather common with most m42 lenses. heck even Takumars on a Pentax m42 body don't always line up completely at the top. I have found that the older Auto-Takumars do generally line up properly, (or very close to it) even when using an adapter on a Kmount body.
