    Updated again! I bought it! (and i hope it's awesome! Ordering rainbow adapter now)

    UPDATED on page 2 with more pix, thanks for any help folks :)



    First post! Straight off- love this site and forums. YOu guys rock.
    Just getting going with micro4/3rds and loving it. Purchased an EP-2 and Oly 45 1.8 and couldnt be more pleased. Of course i want more lenses, i think i'm going to get 20 or 25mm prime when i can- but you guys are driving me crazy with your vintage adapted lens pix and threads.
    So, i went to a pawn shop and this is the only one that looked like it might be something worthy of investigation. I should've studied it closer/took more time but wondering if you guys/gals can help me.



    do i need to go back and snap more/better pix of it to help with identification?

    Thanks for any help.
    Rick

    That tells us nothing. You need some photos (clearer please, as well) of the rear of the lens, so that we can see the lens mount.

    A quick google states t old be Nikon f,Olympus om, Minolta, Pentax k, or m42. So yeah, a few shots of the actual mount should help, or there is a thread by luckypenguin that details adapted lens mounts fairly well . I believe it's a sticky, maybe check that out and compare to your lens.

    The lens is a Rokinon 135mm f/2.8. Is that all you wanted to know? ;)

    Good choice on a getting a legacy 135mm f/2.8 to go with your m.Zuiko 45mm f/1.8. This will make a nice pair for you. Once you find out the mount (as others have said, post a picture of the rear) and get the appropriate adapter, you'll have a good set to start with.

    Don't pay much more than $20-, and definitely make sure there's no fungus or other damage.

    I'm pretty sure it's a Nikon F mount, nut hopefully someone else will confirm.

    It's a Nikon F mount, you can tell because it's got those rabbit ears.

    I can't say it's the best but I have multiple adapters from rainbow imaging and have had no major issues. In your case your adapter will be a bit more than the lens, you should still come in under $50 for both. Now you can start looking or more Nikons.

    Thanks Grinch. Speaking of RainbowImaging, i see that they have 3 adapters listed on their site for Nikon to ยต4/3. "G" and "S" and this one without a letter designation....

    M4/3 MFT lens adapter, Nikon lens, Nikon lens adapter

    Is that the one for me? (last question i promise!!)

    That should do the trick, and keep the questions coming. You should find that this forum is very supportive, with mild jeering occasionally. Happy shooting.
