Welcome to the forum, sorry no experience of your lens and camera, but I'm sure other folk around here will.

Bonjour from France and welcome to PF, BRIANO ... Hope to see some images soon. Salut, J

PS - from my experiences, most Chinon lenses in M42 are only average in IQ.

Hi Thanks for your reply. Which Chinon lenses have you had experience of?
I have been told that chinon lenses were made by pentax and the 55mm 1.7 lens is very sharp.
Thanks BRIANO

Salut,

I had once a copy of the M42 135/2.8 and did not think too much about it. Somewhere I still have a Chinon 200/3.5that I need to test further ...

I do have a nice K-mount Auto Chinon 50/1.4 ... it's hard to goof up a fifty in my books.

I have never heard about Pentax making lens for Chinon. Tomioka has been said to have made lens for them.
