I don't think there's been a thread for adapting old glass to modern cameras? Kind of inspired by the Helios 44 thread, that lens is certainly popular enough to warrant it's own thread, so this is for all else. Wasn't certain whether to add 'adopted' or 'adapted'? people oft get those confused, I think it's adopt a lens to a system, but use an adapter? correct me if I'm wrong. I know many are adapting old glass these days because mirrorless camera make it so easy. You get benefits that old school film shooters never had with the same glass. We now have the likes of zoom focus, coupled with focus peaking [I know they had focus screens, but now with digital peaking it's even easier to snap to focus] and bonus features like IBIS that can breathe new life into these old classic lenses. Feel free to recommend any great finds you've discovered, any great bargains you've had? And of course, share your vintage glass images [either of the lenses, or taken images taken with], tell us your set up, and maybe what you love about using these old gems I received a lovely vintage Vivitar 200mm F4 this morning, sadly I'm still awaiting the MD adapter before I can test it, but the lens is in very good shape and was pretty much a steal at £22 [£36 inc p&p, but still decent] - a cool bonus for me was the lens cap from my 12-40 lens fits! as it came without one - it does have it's own built in hood though. Very solid build, the glass is in excellent condition, a few scratches and minor dents here and there on the body but looking down through it with a light I can't see any signs of fungus or haze and barely any secs of dust, very happy with that. I also have a Canon FD mount 50mm f/3.5 macro lens, also a very solid little chunk of steel and glass, also very clean optics. I've been using that one quite a bit and getting decent results. That one was pricier, I traded a Takumar 200 F4 that I paid €80 for it. But they do go for over £100 in good nick on ebay.
