Mamiya Sekor

Hey guys!

What kind of adapter do you have for the Mamiya?
I have a Mamiya Sekor 50mm f/1.7 and don't know what kind of adapter I must get for it to work on my Pen.. Untill now I thought there isn't one.

Also, can you change apertures? As far as I can see, there's some thing in the back of the lens that must be pushed for the aperture blades to be closed.

Any help will be much appreciated!

Mine is the Pentax 42 threat mount adapter. The lens has an Auto/Manual switch that I set to Manual and shoot in Aperture Priority.

Took this today used PS to convert to B&W.

REPLY - have a look at Amazon.com: Customer Discussions: Fotodiox Pro lens adapter Mamiya ZE lens to Micro 4/3? Any good?

The ZE 50 1.7 works as a manual lens on M43 cameras with the Fotodiox adapter. Aperture ring on the lens is disabled while it's on the adapter. Instead, you can change the aperture via a ring that's on the adapter itself - although not in f-stop steps. Make sure you change the IS in menu to 50mm - and use the focus magnification in-camera for super-sharp pics. This is my first reply on a forum, incidentally. Hope this helps. Cheers, erossii

(fixed post!)

More life to a dying thread! Adapted lenses are such fun. The lens was $15 with a working Mamiya 1000DTL into the bargain, the adapter was $11.

Please excuse the gratuitous bokeh, it's been awhile since I had f1.8!

hmm this lens seems to perform pretty well... I have one, and I haven't tanken it off of my grandpa's 1000 dtl...

It is awesomely sharp, even wide open. I did add contrast in post, I haven't shot enough with it to say definitively, but it seems a little muted. That could be the cloudy day, though. Anyway the images fix up nicely, and the colors are excellent.

I like this lens, it flares pretty bad in the wrong lighting, but you can get some really sharp, really saturated images
