Thank you so much for the advice, setting to manual for mounting seems to have worked perfectly and it now mounts fine. One thing I've noticed is that the button on the side that stops it down doesn't do anything with this lens, but when I set the shutter speed to B and look through the lens I can see it's getting stopped down correctly for taking photos. This isn't going to be an issue, right?

This might be a very silly question, I'm not particularly knowledgeable with these cameras. I have a Spotmatic F and just bought a Pentacon 1.8/50 auto mc, and when I try to screw it onto my body it stops dead about a quarter turn from the correct orientation and as soon as I let go it unscrews itself a bit and is very loose. I know its an M42 body, and it's definitely the M42 version on the lens, and my other two M42 lenses fit the body...

Is it a problem with the lens? My body? Just incompatible? Fairly stupidly I've already started the return process and bought another one from Ebay when I probably should have asked on here first. If this lens is just plain incompatible, could anyone suggest a good alternative that won't break the bank?

Thank you in advance
