    From a quick search on Google it seems that Hanimex lenses came in different mounts. If you know what camera they came from this may help in finding an adapter. Look at the back of the lens, if it is a screw thread it is probably m42, if it is a bayonet you will need more expert advice as there are a number of different fittings. Sorry I can't help more.

    Thanks they are screw thread I'm pretty sure as the cap over the end has to be screwed on so I will need an m42 adaptor then?

    Thank you my adaptor arrived today and fits beautifully now all I need to do is learn to focus accurately which will be a challenge I suspect! Is there an idiot's guide to starting to do things like this? I've got the manual etc but I get distracted by all the things that are possible rather than learning how to do one thing really well! You'd think as a teacher I would be able to concentrate more!
