Aye it is indeed...I did my homework several years back when looking for my first digital SLR and discovered something on offer better and cheaper than a Nikon or Canon name brand, the least known Fuji S2 with its unique super CCD. But my experience with all that is another story

Alright!

- News -

1. I have reviewed a fisheye adapter here :
http://photocamel.com/forum/camera-e...tml#post558213

(that's "Fuji news" as I used it on my Fuji camera)

2. Also, back on topic of M42 lenses, I have purchased a Canon EOS Rebel with "error 99" (which I hope to fix) for a reasonable 90 US bucks (shipped)

Canon Digital Rebel EOS Error 99 D-SLR Accessories - eBay (item 180297576377 end time Oct-09-08 18:59:21 PDT)

Well see how that handles the M42 lenses in "Aperture priority mode"

The M42 adapter that supports infinity focus is only $7 but takes at least 20 days to arrive from China :

canon m42 infinity, Lenses Filters, Cameras Photo items on eBay.com

That's my news for now.. Stay tuned

Craig

UPDATE : For comparison against the old manual lenses I thought I'd pick up a Canon lens meant for the digital rebel - to my surprise I got a "Canon EF 35-80MM f/4-5.6 III LENS" for $32 shipped, with a 7 day warranty - $32 AF lenses As a Nikon shooter I've never imagined such a thing. Those Canon shooters certainly have a lot of inexpensive glass to choose from! Lucky them! Now I just have to overcome this "error 99" business...

UPDATE : OK, I fixed the Canon error and have been practicing with it, but the M42 adapter is not here yet it ...
