This was a bit unintentional, but I think I can say my latest "lens accessory" is an Enna "Sockel" mount in M42!

I bought a 28mm Ultra-Lithagon on eBay, thinking it was going to be something "a bit different" to play with and was totally confused until I discovered what I'd really bought! The problem now, of course, is the urge to find other sockel-mount lenses to play with Wink

I just won another Minolta hood.
MDiii clip-on hood for:
Minolta 100mm f4.

I'm planning on adding the Minolta MDiii 100mm f4 to my
collection in 2020, so I grabbed the hood while I could find one cheap.

An excellent lens, certainly much sharper than the earlier MC/MD 3.5/100mm Macro.

Thanks, good to know. It's definitely on my list to buy for 2020. Glad to have found the hood ahead of time.

I still have my old Olympus ringflash, it does not work properly with canon digital full-frame since Canon seems to have some strange delay mechanism for x sync flash. Others might be interested that I received an excellent voltage reducing PX625 adapter from Kanto camera in Japan, so now my Leitz SL works properly with a small silver-based-elecrolyte battery.

The budget kinda went out the window this month.
I have 3 57mm plastic Minolta lens caps with the raised letters and pebble background, coming from Japan.
Kinda worried about these. Bought on the 7th, no tracking number and haven't received them yet.

Also from Japan a Minolta metal lens cap, 57mm.

Now for the hoods I just won.
Miranda 50mm f1.8 lens hood, with original box and case. $19.50 shipped.
I wouldn't of bid on this if I'd known...

Just after I won and paid for The lens hood. I was looking on eBay and found....

NOS Miranda 50mm f1.4 lens hood with case. No box. $24.99 shipped. This is the 46mm version.

More then I normally pay for lens hoods, but I couldn't let the 50mm f1.4 lens hood pass.

I have a near identical set (the storage pot body of mine is white).
On of the tubes is the right length to allow my retractable Industar 50 to focus to infinity on an LTM mount without sliding it out. This is now my normal configuration with this lens simply pull the lens out for macro shooting.

This month I got a Minolta D55NA lens hood for my Minolta MC 58mm f1.4 lens. It also came with a Minolta 52/55 step ring.

Also got a very nice Miranda Focabell Auto S bellows.

Not exactly MF but usable for MF M42 lenses as well on my Sony A850 and A7R II this is my latest addition of really useful accessories:

Kenko Mx-AF 2X Teleplus MC7 DG converter:



Even better than any original Minolta/Sony one as it supports ALL lenses without any limitations whilst providing surprisingly very good picture quality.
For EUR 70,- incl. shipping, customs fee and tax definitely a bargain.

So I was going to get myself a pentacon tripod for the P6 as they are meant to be quite solid when I stumbled across this lot..



Its even got out of date ORWO film... 😂

Aside from that, has anyone used a pentacon copying/macro stand at all, not sure about what range of movement the main stand should have..

I have never had or used a teleconverter - never, ever. Which makes this a different acquisition for me.

I just got a Canon FD Extender S 2x. Works with FL and R. Seems to fit and work my Takumar lenses as well with an old school M42 to Canon adapter. Will try it out soon.

Thanks Steve for the prompt.
