    Hey m8

    I saw that you have experiance in converting Topcor lenses to PK mount.
    I have recently bought 3 Topcor RE lenses, 35mm 2.8, 5.8cm 1.8, and 135mm 3.5

    I did first convert the 5.8cm to a PK mount but without aparture control from the camera.
    Its recognised as a 1.7 A lens probably because I used an old experiment PK mount were I had drilled some holes trying to make it recognised as an A lens. It works like a m42 but with a bayonett instead and its a fantastic lens.

    Then I tried to convert my 35mm 2.8 but this time I used an old Vivitar PK/A mount and actually got it to control the aparture from camera. However. This PK/A mount is thicker so I dont get infinity.

    Most lenses hase some room for adjusting infinity but not this one as far as I can tell.

    Have you made any progress in this area?

    I have an aunt and cousin in Melbourne

    Happy for any input.

    All the best

    The parking on friday night is terrible on Friday.

    Maybe we should try brunswick street this time?

    Some say the new Canon S90 is even better.

    I cannot believe that you got that panasonic camera. I would love a small camera like that!

    Sorry, Voe. I forgot to take my film scanner from Box hill to Hawthorn this morning. I am waiting to go to airport soon. If you could, I got a friend looking after my box hill house who could give you the scanner if you make a time up.
