I received an Anscomark camera also, and have the two extra lenses I purchased earlier intending to get the camera. The lens mount can be removed from the camera non-destructively allowing an adapter to be constructed (M42-Emount, 2 M42 spacers, and M42-58 adapter and an empty 58mm filter ring with a notched filed into it for the lens release lever. The mount is held by screws to the 42-58 adapter. It also has 2 x 58mm filter rings to act as a vanity facade over the M42 spacers and stop the adapter looking strange).
The weather is awful here today so haven't been able to do any tests other that confirming infinity focus is available.

I also finally got round to constructing a mount for these Mamiya lenses which have their own unique bayonet mount. Fortunately they came with metal bayonet lens caps so one was sacrificed to construct the mount. Again, no tests yet other than to confirm infinity focus.

Alun, you are on quite a roll.

well, i already had the adapter from a previous attempt with a CS-mount lens, so didn't feel the $7 for this was too big a risk

A Soligor 200mm 1:6.3 (Made by Sun?), just won it in an auction just because it was very cheap. Can't find anything about it. Has anybody ever seen it? (auction pics)

Do you notice any differences in performance from your 1958 version?

seller says m42 but you never now. It's not on the Soligor compendiun or allphololenses or m42lens.com There is a Camera-wiki Article about the company. http://camera-wiki.org/wiki/Allied_Impex (Maybe T4)

There is also a Tamron 200mm 6.3 about which I can also find nothing (ogh wait.. http://forum.mflenses.com/viewtopic,p,1534767.html#1534767 ). Also a little stovepipe but build is a bit different. https://www.tamron.co.jp/data/old-lens/olm200f6_3.htm

Yes Sir, but mainly because the 1958 version is a 2.8/28 😂

But seriously, my 2.8/28 is not very good ..... after a first try...
we'll see...

This one, the 2/35, is said to be very good.... i've CLA'd it and will give it a try soon !

Oh, I misread your previous post.
Yes the 35mm is said to be good.
I had not heard anything of the 28mm LTM
Thank you

Matches well with some of the Pentax 67 lenses but not all.
Specifically it works best with tele lenses above 165mm.

Thanks for that emoticoness.

Directly mounted onto the Vivitar adapter provided a frame width of 5.5mm at APS-C crop factor.

When it is mounted to a PB-5 at full stretch the frame width was 2mm.

Got a uncommon lens with unusual focal length. Here is one of the photo from the seller.

Don't quote me on this, but if it is a T mount, I think Tamron made lenses for Soligor in T4. This is purely from a vague memory, so please don't take it as fact. My fingers are crossed it's M42 for you.

Today this one arrived in the mail. I can only say after a few tests, EXTREMELY SHARP!

Another auction find. I wanted to try the Rikenon 55mm 2.8, It also had a Pentacon 135mm 2.8 in it (managed to break the aperture coupling inside the lens from a Pentacon electric I cleaned the fungus from, so why not get another one) so I went for it €20 for the lot. It came with a flash an Chinon CX and a Ricoh Singlex TLS and an unidentified Yashica that wasn't in the description.
