hi

hi

myself kushal from india, i love shooting with manual lenses on my canon 600d aps-c dslr
untill now i had been using 2 m42 mount lenses helios 58mm f 2 and smc takumar 55mm f 1.8

recently i had been searching all available resources for few days for getting a 200 mm manual lens. finally i bought a auto chinon 200mm f3.5
the seller described it to be m42 mount, but when i received the lens , i found that its not m42 mount but something other than that.
now i am quite sure that its a pentax mount but which version i am not sure of..

one significant thing i found that circling the lenses front element its written "200mm" and not "f=200mm"

now as the lens overall is in pristine condition so i am not inclined to return it.. only if i get to know the mount type, i can find an adapter

i hope you could help


thanks
kushal

Welcome to the forum! Perhaps you could post some pictures of the lens to help you identify it. Looking forward to seeing some of your images.

hi
Today the seller send me an adapter to fit it with my canon eos..
However after putting it on and getting some test shots, I realized that my copy of chinon 200mm f3.5 is not reaching infinity focus.. The focus ring goes all the way from 2 mt and stops at 30mt but not reaches infinity..
Is there a problem with my copy of lens or is there something special need to be done to get there...?
