[Sold] About the Hanimex 135mm f/2.8 in M42 mount

3. [SOLD] Hanimex 135mm f/2.8 in M42 mount ($15 + shipping)

Conditions:
- glass is clean & minty and the whole lens is in good condition
- lens is all in plastic and NOT good looking, it looks like a toy lens
- this lens is not of well constructed as compared to Soligor 135mm f/2.8 but it has a large lens base. It is a prime candidate for drilling a receiving hole to convert to K mount lens. (I may help to do the drilling to turn it into a K mounted lens with permanently mounted M42 to K adapter

Comes with:
- original front and rear caps
- built in lens hood

Lens front:

Lens back: (adapter not included unless all three lens are purchased together)

Lens side:

A quick snap test picture:
Use M mode with stop down metering

Selling off those M42 lenses already? I may be selling off my Jupter-9 85mm soon. A local seller is offering a Pentax-A * 85mm f/1.4 to me for an insanely good price.

Please PM me for your Jupiter-9 as I don't mind M42 lenses at all, it is just that I load up too many inexpensive but quality gear and gone crazy in buying gear after New Year and I end up not having shelf spaces for lens and bodies.

Thanks,
Hin

Updaded with pictures and info

I have added various lens and test pictures. Reduced the price on the Hanimex 135mm f/2.8. And please remember that buying three lens get you a M42 adapter from Bower.

[EXPIRED]
Package deal: Bower M42 to K mount Adapter free if you buy all three lens


I have warned other user on the Bower 3rd party adapter ever since I had run into a wear/tear situation with the adapter broken with the spring clip that felt off and got trapped in my K mount. The incident was documented in my blog post

Warning on Bower M42 Adapter (or other non-genuine brand):
Warning on Bower M42 adapter - Hin's Tech Corner

And I recommend to use the 3rd party adapter as a a permanent adapter by removing the spring clip above -- the tiny screw that holds the black plate. One can do so by unscrewing the tiny screw out and mount it on you M42 lens such as the following two pictures. And the best tool to unmount the M42 adapter is to use the K mount rear cap that can provide enough friction to unscrew the adapter out.

#1 A converted K mount on Hanimex will look like this. A receiving hole can be drilled in this setup to make it more secure and convert the M42 lens into a K mount lens with the adapter shown. The black spring clip on Bower adapter is removed and mount semi-permanently on the lens base. The best tool to dismount the adapter is to use a K mount rear cap to unscrew the adapter out. This operation is not done yet and subject to buyer's request.


#2 A converted K mount on Pentacon 50mm f/1.8 in M42 mount (not for sale, just sample of converted K mount with large lens base)

And if the lens base is thick as in the two lenses shown above, the locking pin from the K mount bodies in K10/100D will be pushed against the lens base providing enough friction to hold the lens in place. And as mentioned, one can drill a receiving hole on the M42 lens base to have a simulated K mount conversion with the Bower M42 adapter shown above with the black spring clip removed.

You should point out that besides the genuine adapter, this is the only 3rd party adapter that would allow infinity focus on M42 lens according to many people. I, myself, only used the official one, which becomes quite rare these days.

Hi Hin

I cant believe you are selling the 35mm supertak. That thing is sharp. If I did not have one already I would be calling you. What did you replace the 35mm range with?

If you end up with the 85mm Jupiter I would love to know what you think. I have wanted one of those for a while.

Good luck with the sale... It is a great deal.

Gus, the SuperTak 35mm is super sharp and I like it a lot for the small size. But I got another two lens that are Vivitar 24mm f/2.8 and Vivitar 28mm f/2.5 and both are wider for my street and night shooting and hence the selling.

[Weekend special:] Buy all three lens and get $15 instant saving and the free Bower M42 to K adpater.

About the unsold supertak 35mm f/3.5

I am withdrawing the SuperTakumar 35mm f/3.5 the end of today. I have a good friend who may want it and I for one will like to play with it a bit longer. I am thinking of FA 35 f/2.0 but I am broke at the current moment and I can't afford the 21mm limited. Until I get the FA 35mm f/2.0 or the Da 21mm limited, I need to keep this.

I highly recommend the SuperTakumar 35mm as it is very cute and small like a pancake to me. Alright, not quite like a pancake, but it is very thin compared to other 50mm and all other 24mm and 28mm that I have. This lens is in M42 mount, when I mount the bower adapter with the spring clip removed on this lens and due to its light weight and small size, there is absolutely no issue of abrupt turning on the lens and it serves as K mount 35mm for me.

Will mark as SOLD at end of today.

Thanks,
Hin
