About Pentax-M42 mount cameras


Digital use:
First of all any Pentax or Samsung-pentax mount D-slr can use this lens, as the M42 previous version with an M42 adapter. On Canon Eos cameras, with an adapter you can find easily on ebay.
Whatever camera you have an M42 adapter for, it is compatile.
No way for Nikon users, sorry, due to the camera register is impossible to mount an M42 on a Nikon without loosing the infinite focusing capability...
