I just snagged a m42 Takumar 50m mm f1.4 it is not the 8 element lens but I have read it is a real gem. I have ordered an M42 to F adapter and it is on it's way. I want to shoot it head to head against my Nikon AiS 50mm f1.4. If I can figure out a fair test besides a brick wall...

Anyway, I thought I would ask the group if others have a favorite non F mount lens they have converted or adapted to F mount. I have a few Zuico lenses I need to investigate adapters.
