How to use with modern cameras?

Lenses with mounting thread M42 (M42 X 1 / 45.5), such as the lens from this review, are very easy to use on almost any modern digital camera (both SLR and mirrorless), for this it is enough to choose the right adapter (adapter). You do not need to carry out any additional steps to modify the lens.

The cheapest adapters can be found aliexpress.com... There are adapters (adapters) with a chip that provide more convenience during shooting, usually chips are used to confirm focus and / or metering exposure, and form the correct EXIF. The chip does not affect the image quality in any way.

For some SLR cameras (for example, Nikon F) it is necessary to use adapters with a corrective lens, which allows correct focusing at all focusing distances. For any mirrorless camera, such a lens is not needed, and the adapter is a simple decorated hollow metal tube with an appropriate mount.

  • Artem

    67-583 - a number and place in hell, where they shoot on this lens

    I think this should limit the review))

    • Andrei

      At first I thought that the run of the focal))

  • anonym

    It is very similar to my unsuccessful Tele 200 / 3,5 both externally and especially in the issued pictures

    • Bkrg

      And my Telear gives a much better picture.

  • Pastor

    Good review :) I never had hopes for montgomery - it was too much of a hat company, but the examples of photos surprised me. Bottle glass lomography for 50 years overdue. Very original. For 10 bucks I would take it - it looks cool. I would put it on the shelf to admire :) Thank you for not bypassing even such glasses.

    • Artem

      How subtly you described the optical "advantages" of this lens))) I would compare it with photographing through a dense cellophane, but yours is more accurate)))

  • Vadyukhin

    At minus 2/3 stop exposure correction and is quite useful for “emotional” shots with cats and so on. I cheaply took a high-aperture (2,8) hundred thirty-five, with a similar "sharpness" and DD - and sometimes I use a portrait for subject photography, it is not bad ... And, quoting Pastor: “Lomography with bottle glass for 50 years overdue for XNUMX film. Very original ”- it really suits some subjects very well. Moreover, yes, in general, "does not shine."

  • max

    pay extra for the shooting, I hope?

  • Igor

    In principle, everything is expected.

  • anonym

    and why there is not a single example on the covered diaphragm ???

  • Olaf torkland

    At one time, I had a Beroflex 200 3.5 full copy, it was outwardly pretty nice, brushed aluminum, and the optically just creepy junk and MDF was also hellish (or 2.7m or 3.5m, like here). Soaped at all aperture values.

  • anonym

    I didn't think there was anything worse than 18-200 on the long end. Although if you close to 5,6 ...

    • Artem

      5,6 as if fully open at the long end)

  • Victor

    ... I was very surprised by the “made in Japan” on the case ... usually, the Japanese don't make their optics really badly ...

  • Eugene o

    "67-583 - the row and place in hell where they shoot with this lens"
    This made my day :)

  • anonym

    when I got mold on 80-200 2.8, the contrast also dropped a lot. Photos looked like examples.

  • Arkady Shapoval

    I did not expect that this review will gain so many comments :)
