Using M42/Screw mount lenses on your Sony alpha

If you are wondering on
-how to get the best out of your alpha
-the most economical way to get good glass
-how to experiment more and learn
-how to marry old school with new
-how to use the old lenses lying around

the M42/screw mount lenses do offer a solution.
1. they have good glass in them
2. very affordable
3. offer a chance to experience what photography was about 30 yrs ago but with instant results

Some of these lenses have great glass that can produce amazing image sharpness and bokeh on portraits.
Sometimes it is very economial to get such lenses for your SLR and often people relish these old legacy lenses.
The Alpha/maxxum system will accept all screw mount lenses with a small adapter(about $7.00-$10.00). The only catch is you set the aperture and focus manually. No big deal- this will only make you a better photographer and help you understand the art.

I shall post a list of desired M42/Screw mount lenses soon along with some images of an M42/Screw mount lens on the Alpha.
Test Images from a M42/SM lens on Alpha shall follow as well.

In light of escalating maxxum lens prices and the growing demand for affordable options, I shall now offer good quality screw mount lenses along with an adapter already mounted (you just attach the lens to your alpha the way you attach all the other lenses.
set the camera to "m" manual mode and start shooting. you will begin to see the viewfinder darken or brighten as you adjust the aperture and metering will be indicated inside the viewfinder. Now focus manually and
