|I'm now fairly aware of the MF lenses in dedicated mounts that can be adapted to my Canon EOS, I.E. Nikon, M42, etc, as well as the Tamron Adaptall/ adaptall-2, and I even have a few of the old Adapt-a-matic lenses now, with an M42 adapter.
How do you "find" and search for (on eFray) some of the other adaptable lenses such as the Vivitars, Sologar, etc?
What are these adapters called, how do you recognise them? (Often the seller has no idea. I recently got into a pissing contest with a seller who had an Adaptall wide angle. First he got pissy and gave me a smart answer, then "apologized" but still did not know that what he actually had was an adaptall mount!!!
My point is, that I know some manufacturers had their own systems, like T4 and Tx, and of course the Adaptall's
Is there someplace that has some good pictures, some hints on identifying these?
