What bayonet does that Carena Use?

The Carena SFL2 is the exact same camera as the Petri FT EE

The Carena uses the Petri breech-lock lens mount. Petri used this through most of their production, changing toward the end to the M42 mount to take advantage of the availability of third-party lenses in M42 (I don't know if you'll find any third party lenses in the Petmount). The original Petri breech-lock is a good, wear-proof mount, similar to the Praktina design.

I always thought the breech lock - - Practina, Petri, Canon - - was a sensible design: quick, wear-proof, precise alignment of all lens components with all camera body components. I never understood why Canon abandoned it, although it is a little clumsier to operate than a true bayonet.

Was not expecting this one at all ... there was a "boot sale" next to the outdoor market where I buy the veggies, etc. on Sunday morning.

Everything works with new batteries and bought the big camera bag with all below in it for 35€ ... the AX-5 and winder are quite nice and I want to try it with the EBC 35/2.8. Plus the ST 901 has a very cool LED readout ... never seen this one before. The zoom is a Kiron Vivitar "Series 1" 70-210/3.5 (n° 22xxxxxxx) in M42. Unfortunately it has some "deep" fungus, but I will clean it to my best ... fingers crossed here.

This was someone's nice Fujica kit ... and as per the warranty cards, it was purchased in Poitiers, too.

The AX5 is in working condition is a nice camera (better than the Super A and the Canon A-1 IMO) while I don't like the ST901 much.

Thanks. I am impressed with the feature set and build/handling of the AX-5 and reading the manual now ... and enjoying the English spelling/grammar errors, etc. I have an EBC X 50/1.6 (with fungus ) up in the attic ... maybe I should dig it out and see if it's salvageable. I bought it on a whim at the thrift store for 2€ ...

You should try to get the Fujinon/Porst 50mm f1.2, fabolous lens, the best 1.2 I own.

Open wide:





About f5.6:





Unfortunately you can't get it for 2 euros.

Thanks again ... and you don't know my thrift store. Nothing is beyond the realm of possibility !

And it took the best part of an hour tonight, but I have pretty much cleaned up and saved the Kiron zoom ... really "easy" overall; it came apart like butter. Pulled 4 front elements out to remove all the fungus and then went back together as "easy as pie" ... really great, great build quality here. Really.

Found this at a local flea market and got a good deal, so how could I resist? (Looks like the GAF L-17 goes back to "backup" status.)

Because that's a crop sensor lens, and it won't cover the full film frame? And you'll have to shoot wide open, because there's no aperture ring? It will work, though, for various definitions of the word "work". I'm sure you know all of this anyway, and this was probably just a joke. Sorry to have taken it seriously.

technicaly the 18-55 cover the FF from 24 to 55.

It work fine on any A mount body that can countrol aperture without aperture ring.

And yes, i've tested it and still use it from time to time.

Well, ok, at 18mm, when I put my 18-55 kit lens on my spotmatic, I got a large round crop on the film. It's the definition of a "crop lens": that it doesn't cover the full 35mm frame. So, not so useful in it's full zoom range. And the MX isn't an A-mount body.

Of course it's not usefull from 18 to 55. but it works perfectly from 24 to 55. Which is quite good in itself for a FF.

Indeed. Still, a good 24-55 mm f4-5.6 is always usefull on A mount body.
