I like OM bodies, and I like Jupiter zonnar clones for charakter. Is it possible to find J8/J9 in OM mount? What I came accross is M42 jupiters and M42 to OM body adapter (Jolos?). Did anybody tryed it either way? Do you know of any other zonnars in OM mount? I'am looking for that very distinctive bokeh and old fashioned look.
Igor, if there is indeed an adaptor to mount an M42 lens on an OM body you should be OK -- though I have never heard of one myself. You may lose meter coupling but if it gives you infinity focus then that's the important thing.
I recently got the Jolos M42 - OM adapter with the hopes of using a J-9 among other character FSU lenses. All I can say is I'm disappointed in this product. Infinity cannot be focused, so unless you are into macro work or close portraits I'd just pass on it.
Better yet, get a Pentax with M42 and then enjoy that good time J-9 feeling.
I have an M42 adapter, without optical element; mine is an old Spiratone. Yes, it does not focus to infinity, but it is handy for close-ups/macros. I use it for my Helios M44-2 and a Carl Zeiss Jena 135/3.5 This shot was with the CZJ on an OM-1n.
