It is a very hard finding, was an expensive and good lens for its time. And Fujica cameras were mainly bought as unexpensive alternative cameras from beginners and amateurs, who would not justify the high price for what was considered more a "flag lens" than a user one.
Mechanically the lens is a little masterpiece, the internal filter changing is impressive. As complicated as smooth. It has an incorporated flower-shaped light shade (not removable), and the metal cap is a slip in type, identical to previous M42 version.

About Fuji SLR.
The Fujica best SLR bodyto hold this lens:
The Fujica AX5.
Digital use:
No easy digital new life for this lens, the FujiX bayonet cannot be made compatible with any commercial Dslr. Register is shorter than Canon one, and would require a complex bayonet rebuilding work. I SUPPOSE no mirror shaving would be needed, since the lens is identical to its M42 previous version. Epson RD1 and Leica M8 could use it with a custom-made adapter.
