For Takumar m42 lenses k-7 or canon 50d

Im new to this forum.

Ive got a bag full of SMC Takumar lenses which I finally what to start using.

Can anyone recommend me which to choose, the k-7 or the 50d.

Im especially interested in knowing about mirror or infinity focus issues, or which adapter to buy.

Thank you!!!

I've got a 40D and two cheap M42 adapters from Amazon. One has the stop down flange and another does not. I use them fairly interchangably as most of my lenses are Taks and have the ability to stop down by themselves.

No mirror or infinity issues, Av mode works a treat, and the VF is pretty good for focusing fast glass, and LiveView takes over for other situations.

In short, great combo and I love it.
