    Nikon mount, adapted on GH2.

    P1040068.

    P1040119.

    There's some focusing problem below, not a problem of the lens.

    Nice! I have the Vivitar version of this lens (same manufacture, same optics), and it's my primary macro lens now.

    Just got this lens from a fellow forum member, at the same time I put together a little DIY macro rig and flash diffuser. Took it all out to a city garden for some test shots and I can instantly see why this lens is a cult classic!

    The rear end of the lens determines the mount and adapter. If you know for sure your friend "can use it on her Nikon", then you need a Nikon F to m4/3 adapter. If you mean "cannot", you'll need to determine the mount.

    My copy is a Canon FD mount, I'm not sure how many different mounts this lens came in. You could take a picture of the mount on your friend's lens and post a new thread here asking for identification. I'm sure someone will figure it out.

    When I figure out how to post pic on this thread or any other thread for that matter I will post some from my OM mount lens.

    Just keep posting. Anyone who takes the time to check this lens out will soon find out why you are so happy to have it.
