If it doesn't work (which often they don't) you haven't wasted a fortune and the lens can be used via a PB adaptor on any mirrorless or Canon DSLR

This Praktica cameras have often problems with the electronic and with broken plastic parts but the lenses for it are excellent.
I used one of this cameras a couple of years ago with the Zeiss Jena 1.4/50 and the Macro 2.8/50mm

I have bought two of them (for their lenses) and re-sold the bodies. Both worked perfectly. The Prakticar 50mm 1.4 that came with them is a very nice lens. Mine has a very, very warm cast, but I like it a lot. The Prakticar 50 1.8 is an ok lens. Nothing too special, but it does the job. I will not recommend it to anyone for anything in particular, but it delivered pretty decent pictures.
