Well, admittedly, there have been a few threads (even by myself) pertaining to these lenses, but I thought that perhaps for the archives, it might be nice to have an 'official' thread encompassing all the sort of info one might like to find when researching these rarish beasts - and give those of us who sing the praises that chance. In that light, I'd love to see some of your photos, thoughts or experiences with these lenses.

I only have the 125 and 180 myself, hence the abridged poster, but... hope you enjoy it anyways

Speaking of the 180, theres very little info on it out there so - heres a pic I took on the way to work the other day. Only mildly treated in Lightroom, gives you an idea of the crispness and contrast at a comfortable telephoto range. Because of its close focus (1.2m) capabilities, its easy to get very selective shots with it. I'll try for samples of that next.

It's been a while since I posted here, so I hope the 'quick reply' is the way to ask a question

My wife bought me three used Voigtlander lenses, two are still in their leather cases and have their original lens covers.

They feel compact and beautifully made. I like quality manual focus lenses and I know to make them work with my K5.

- 135mm f4, Super Dynarex
- 35mm f3.4 Skoparex
- 50mm 2.8 Color Skopar X

However, I cannot find any reference to how to make these work with the K5 K mount, or any reference to the 135mm and the 35mm here on the database. They are not M42, they're smallish, three-sided bayonet mount.

Is this a dead end? I'd love to see how the colours and contract work on these.

thanks for your thoughts.

Stefan

I know all three of those lenses come in more than one mount. If they are the Bessamatic mount I believe you can fit them to your Pentax with a DKL to PK adaptor. Here is a link to an Ebay page selling Voigtlander adaptors on Ebay. You'll notice quite a difference in price between the one sold by Adorama and the one from China. I've never used one so I don't know what, if any, differences there are between them.

Voigtlander to Pentax adaptor - Bessamatic

That's brilliant thank you. Not sure why my searches did not discover it, I thought it might not exist.

It is a Bessamatic (and I have the body). It also came with a flash unit in the shape of a plastic egg!

Once again thanks
