hi, i am looking for any M42 lenses out there that will fit my old spotty.

the one i am looking for is in the 20 to 55 mm range and specifically fits a 55mm filter.

the reason for this is the SUN model EE lens that is kinda fisheye and blurry edged for good bokeh!

help! morg

after rejoining the pentax world with an A3, i have just bought an old spotmatic (serial 1365037) with a domiplan 2.8/50 lens.

i am using this lens to reorient myself with a manual camera.

i note that the takumar 5.6/200mm lens is thought of as good to use even though it is heavier than the body!!

looking forward to seeing the results

cruise season in akaroa,NZ so i will test out on the harbour

forget canada, try akaroa nz, which seems to be the new cruise ship go-to. i could easily merge with the tourists by wearing the 75-200mm lens, but i don't look good in khaki!!

thanks for that. I knew it wasn't a great camera from the start, only about US$20 off the NZ version of eBay.
i was used to working with a fully manual old spotmatic, and hope to get another one soon.

any suggestions for film types for the A3? or should an everyday sun/flash film do the job

i have read good things in the past about the A3. i am just using it in a casual/amateur way.

i also recently bought a sun telenet model EE lens and am wondering about the easiest way to marry its 55mm threads to my 49mm threads. help
