Sigma SD10 with M42 adaptor

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by David Kilpatrick, Jun 22, 2004.

  1. I just acquired a Sigma (SD compatible) machined third party adaptor for
    M42 Pentax/Praktica thread lenses from:

    http://www.d-shell.net/

    Cost $95 including shipping and I placed the order on-line just THREE
    DAYS AGO - that is, on Saturday and today is Tuesday. The adaptor
    arrived by signed-for post, superbly packed (very simply), this morning.
    From Japanese engineering shop to my door in that time and ordered on a
    weekend day as well!

    Just fitted my old Super Takumar 105mm f2.8 and the finder image looks
    lovely - incredibly warm colours with this lens and a luminous look to
    everything. Got macro bellows, 1200mm spotting scope, and all sorts of
    other old rubbish I can try out now. But I wish I had kept a 50mm f1.4,
    have to go looking in junk boxes and at car boot sales now.

    This sounds very cool. May you have lots of fun with it! (And take
    great pitcures too for that matter :)).

    Around here SMC, and Super-Takumar 50mm f:1.4 are fairly common. They also
    appear on eBay for a song. Great lens
