Hi, I'm looking to purchase a Mir 47 20mm f2.5, ideally M42. Not interested in copies that need repair, looking for a good one to use on my nikon DSLR. Familiar with all the usual caveats that come with these old lenses as I have a small collection, but information on the 47-K is hard to come across so any further info is appreciated.

Must be able to ship to Australia, PayPal preferred.

Thanks,

the letter "K" means is a pentax "K" mount! if you want nikon mount it should be Mir-47N and if you want m42's it should be Mir-47M.

Welcome GadgetPhotos

You know m42 and k-mount lenses can't focus to infinity on Nikon camera....

Thanks, edited the original post to remove the "K" specification.

And yes, aware M42 does not focus to infinity without an adapter on Nikon.
