EOS extension tubes , plus EOS to FD adapter , plus a Canon macrophoto coupler in FL mount modified so the Ektar lens would screw on the front. All this giving me focus from 3 feet to infinity .

Tom, thanks for this. Looks interesting. I have enjoyed playing with older optics on my DSLRs, but the mounts I've selected have limited me to macro work.

You've taken a 127mm lens and put it on a mount that let's you focus 3' to infinity. Neat.

How are you focusing? Does the Canon macrophoto coupler have a helical, or are you adding and dropping ext tubes?

Do it yourself projects are fun. A few months ago I was playing around with the lens head from my LTM 90mm f4 Elmar when I discovered it would thread into series 5 threads. That started a project that wound up as a bellows mounted 90mm f4 for my Olympus Pen F that will focus from infinity to 1:1 and of course I can still put it back on the Leica 90 helical for my rangefinder. Just love things that will do double duty.
