|In my exploration of former communist lenses, I encounter a lot of intriguing medium format lenses. In particular, some in the 80-90mm range appeal to me.
However, I am confused as to the lens mounts, Pentacon 6 and Kiev 88 / Salyut. Many adapters are listed to be compatible with both. However, other resources point out some compatibility issues between P6 lenses on K88 and vice-versa (I found that the register distance is different too)
Would I need an additional adapter from Kiev-88 to Pentacon 6, for using Kiev-mount lenses?
(I know these lenses do not have ultra-high resolution, but that is of no concern.)
