Greetings,

I have a Primagon in Exakta mount to which I have epoxied a M39 to M42 adapter. I love the lens and the pictures it takes . Its very sharp close up.

Being an Exakta to m42 adaptation, I am short on infinity by a tad. I am interested to know if anyone here has had experience; in opening up a Primagon and adjusting for infinity.

I should be able to achieve what I am looking for by sanding down my lens adapter too- I am just looking at my options .

It would be nice to be able to capture landscape , skylines with this lens- as it is wide and super sharp.

Best regards


(The first picture has the M39 to M42 adapter glued on)

i don`t have the same lens as yours, and i only opened one so far, but they look similar in construction...

maybe this thread of mine can help
