Pentax, Formula 5 28 mm F 2.8 58
RMC Tokina 100-300 mm 1-5, Pentax, RMC
Kenlock-MC-tor 1-2.8 f=35 mm, Pentax
Tokina 28 mm 1-2.8 49, Pentax, Tokina 28 mm 1-2.8
Tokina SD 70-210 mm 1-4 - 5.6 , Pentax, Tokina SD
SMC Takumar 1:1.8/55, Pentax, SMC Takumar
Helios-44m-4 2/58, Pentax, Helios-44m-4 2/58
RMC Tokina 500mm 1:8, Pentax, RMC Tokina 500mm
Super Takumar 1:4/150, Pentax, Super Takumar

I can get all these lenses for about 150$
Can I use them on a 5d mark II.

Seems like a jungle finding out, which ones hit the mirror ect.
I just started reading about vintage MF lenses yesterday.

Thanks! Smile

Guess I would for starters, have to know if they have m42 threading ?

The Takumar 50 and the Helios are probably M42, the rest could be Pentax PK mount. It's not a bad deal with the Tokina 500 / 8 mirror lens included.

Yes, as far as I know, Pentax-K lenses do not fit to 5D (at least mine didn't).
All I can say that the Helios is M42 version. Some 44M4 hit, some don't, so that's risky...

Takumar 150 & Helios 44M are definitely M42 mount.

For $150 this is a good deal imho...

If I buy all, I can get them for 80 Euro.

So I guess I should !

Lens collecting is FUN, but reselling is much more work than buying. Wink But I'd guess most of us have or will learn that the hard way. Laughing

Yes. Reselling is time consuming. It depends on how you sell your lens and how much you want to sell them. Wink
