Hi guys,

just bought a brand new Konvas M2 35mm camera and I would like to know where I can find an OCT-19 to Canon FD or M42 adapter to use still cameras lenses on the Konvas.

Any help?

Thanks

Giorgio

I don't know. i would take a guess that Asahi Takumar M42 lenses might be a problem, as they extend behind the mount at Infinity focus. That's a shame, as they are generally beautiful glass.

Looking also for info about the OCT-19 to OCT-18 adapter to use oct 18 lenses, they are cheap and the oct-19 lenses are very expensive at the moment, any help on this?

I would like to buy a good prime lens for my camera to test it.

Any other option?

Thanks

Giorgio

The Tamron lenses with T2 mount are very rare. It doesn't work with the common adaptall lenses sadly.

I think the T2 option is a good option if you are trying to mount stuff to PL mount but seems not so exciting for OCT-19.

 

I was under the impression that the M42 adaptor for OCT-19 works better than the one for PL which only works with one lens and really only with that after a bit of machining. Don't know how much more lenses will work with OCT-19 tho.

 

I would encourage you to go with an OCT-18 adaptor because then when you do get some OCT-19 lenses they will be a better match as it's often the same lomo glass in different mounts. You could even hook up a foton zoom or something maybe? Sometimes the foton would come with and OCT-19 adaptor but I suspect those days are gone now. I think the 135mm OCT-18 lens will work easily with an adaptor. Not sure if some lenses will have focus issues.

 

The OCT-19 lenses are worth gettting your hands are as they are very nice lenses. 

 

Sometimes that 8mm lens is available in OCT-19 I think? Can't remember the name of it now! Pelang or something? Obviously it's very wide tho. 

 

Sounds like you might have been better off with a Konvas 1M although that can be a bit of a minefield if you don't know what you are looking for too.

Thanks for your answer guys.

The fact is that I have had a very good deal for a mint condition camera,  i was aware of the OCT -19 mount lenses...

Now I'm looking to find a solution to test the camera without spending a fortune for an OCT-19 lens so I'd like to know which m42 lenses will work on the camera.

as for the oct-19 to oct-18 adapter, I have never seen one for sale, do you know where I can find one?

Thanks

Giorgio
