    Hi

    I have manged to track down a Fujica ST795 for my dad, but it needs a lens. Will any M42 lens fit or does it have to be of a particular type?

    Thanks in advance

    Are you sure it's not an ST705?

    If it is, you can use most M42 lenses but non-Fujinon lenses will have
    to be metered via stop-down method.

    And, be careful if you mount a fast non-Fuji 50mm lens like a 50mm/1.4 or a
    super-wide angle lens as the mirror in the camera may strike the back of the
    lens.

    Yip, is was a typo :lol:

    Thanks for the information. Any good resources for these cameras? Also looking for the strap to go with it.

    Looked like a guitar strap. Like in the picture. Awful I know, but It would e nice to make it look like his original camera

    That is fantastic, and the last line is even better.
