I was horrified to find that my k-3 bought from Ebay has a Bayonet mount and not the screw mount. What are my options with lenses? =I would really like a wider angle lens?

Olex from russian Camera can sell me a 12mm prime from a Kiev 16U for 80 euros? Are these lenses actually any good?

Or a 7.5 - 75mm from a Kinor for 500 euros which seems very expensive, Or is it?? Are these awsome lenses?

So what should i do, would i still get a good image with a wide angle converter screwed onto my stock Meteor? would It work?

Or should i just get the cam converted to M42, or buy a new k3?

Thanks Guys

I have a bayonet camera as well. The 12mm is really a sharp lens, I'm happy with mine. The zoom I'd pass on, as your stock lens covers most of the range anyways.

There are some good lenses out there for the bayonet if you keep your eyes open.

What I've seen is: 8mm, 12mm and I also saw a 50mm on one guys camera. Check with Otto, or raf, they can probably point you to some lenses.
