I love this lens but I only use it occasionally. It doesn't focus to infinity on my Nikon DSLR. It's great for flowers and other close ups though. There was a short break in the rain so I ran out and fired off some shots.

Thanks. I'll definitely buy any Komuras I see going for cheap.

Do you use it with T2-Nikon adapter or you have T2-M42-Nikon combination? First one should give you infinity.

Great samples! I like this lens a lot too.

I use it with a cheap (10 euro) metal adapter so I don't get infinity. I heard that the glass in the adapters can degrade image quality. Is this true?

The Komura lenses came in different mounts, which are removable. I have purchased Komura lenses and then looked for the proper mounts separately.
