Thsese are good sharp photos. I bought one yesterday too - seemed sharp enough as I tried it out on a local legacy gear shop in Auckland. And yes it is really quite a sharp and good lens - I was similarly impressed ::

I have this exact lens... I accidentally bought it on ebay with another lens. I am a beginner hobbiest photographer. Can someone please tell me what type of camera you use this lens on? I am needing to find a converter so it can fit my olympus e420.

thanks!

The lens should have a T-mount adaptor. This means that you can find an appropriate Olympus mount, T-mount ring, perhaps for $15 somewhere like B&H Photo, twist off the current T-mount and twist on the desired (Olympus) T-mount adaptor. It is as easy as taking a lid off a jelly jar, nearly.

The reversal ring is an adaptor that threads onto the front of a lens so you can mount the lens in reverse onto a camera. It just changes the ability of a lens to focus closer to the subject and increase magnification slightly.

My copy has the Pentax K (PK) mount T ring so it can be used on my Pentax cameras (K1000, ZX-50, K10, K-7) in manual mode.

I hope this helps.

Thank you! I ordered a t-mount adapter the other day hoping it was right glad to know it was!
thanks again!
