Konica Hexanon 57/1.2 for me.
Waiting for an adapter for my FujiFilm X-E1.
Can this be converted to EOS mount? Would be nice if it can be done.

It's been discussed on the Forum & Miscellaneous forum since April 22,

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1207084

Raises interesting questions, like, "will somebody outside the US have to pay US tax on an internet sale based in the US?".

Anyway, I don't think it'll affect me too seriously - I'm starting to run out of GAS.

I only have a few more on my list of lenses to get, but they are all pricy.

Canon 50 1.5 ltm for an excellent price. Can't wait to try it out (on my X-E1).

Think about tinkering an adapter for my Hexanon 57mm to achieve near field photography, probably up to 1meter distance without shaved mirror. Most likely I could achieve more, cause I have a slightly shorter mirror in my EOS 5D.

Realizing this is a alternate lens form- hope its ok to post this really different creation. Flea market find for $1.00 . I believe Joe the plummer made this for Shara Palin to photograph Russian Bears out her bedroom window . .

Wow! This Canon FD 500/4.5L is super LIGHT!
I got it today.

And the price I paid for the FD 85/2.8 soft focus was unbelievably low!
Haven't gotten it yet, hoping good thoughts...

I seen it, thanks, but I want a nice clean copy, I came close to pulling the trigger on a Canon RF 50/1.4, but I really want the 1.5 first, if it's as sharp as my Helios 103, I'll be very happy.

28/2 Kiron in Pentax mount and a Kiev-4 to rip the lens mount off and see if I can use it to attach a Nikon 50/2 S mount RF lens to a Nex. If it works I may look for some other cheap RF lenses.
