There are still some pictures from the lens on flickr and a discussion about its close relatives, a 3,5/28 and a 4/24, also here.

If you use google translate that largerly improved in quality the last years, you'll read from the Russian site that the lens is very good from w/o in the center and razor sharp overall from f8.

Cheers

Whatever adapter matches the Unidapter mount on the lens. Unidapter mounts are somewhat common in M42, Nikon, Minolta, and Exakta. But you often have to buy a lens to get the one you want. I bought a cheap 135mm Komura lens to get an Exakta adapter for my Komura 100/1.8. Not now I use the M42 that came on it for my Pentax K-1.

I received one only a few days ago, my copy is a Uni-Auto model. Initial testing so far is not too good, the corners are blurry. It may be just my copy. If you buy and try one, you shouldn't lose money as Komura are a brand that gets plenty of interest, and the 24mm lens is a little more rare than some of their other focal lengths.

I also have the 100 1.8 ,but it's mount ring,which can be unscrewed and changed to other mount,seems different that the 24's mm which doesn't appear to unscrew. For portraits, i like the 1.8 and in fact,is the only 100mm 1.8 i have (who knows if it's a real 1.8 or not....)
