Hi all. A friend has offered to give me their Kowa SETR 50mm f/1.9 lens and I was wondering if anyone if there is an MFT adapter for it. Its got a bayonet mount. I've attached some pictures below. Please help with any information. Thanks.

The Kowa SET-R was a unique camera back in the late '60s era. It was one of a few 35mm SLR's with leaf shutter giving it much better flash syncing capability than the focal-plane shutters that were vastly more common. It was my first "real" camera and I shot a lot of photos with it until I switched to Canon. Unfortunately, along with the leaf shutter, it also had the aperture iris built into the body, so the lenses were only usable on that particular camera. As such, and along with the uncommon mount, I seriously expect you will have no chance in finding a way to adapt these to your digital body.

you can create a custom mount using a 5 dollar body capm and a series of washers and crazy glue but you will have no f stops beyond wide open .

@Hunter..thanks for the info. my friend said the exact same thing: it was his "first real camera". I guess my search continues for a low light lens.
