    I just purcased a Asahi Pentax Spotmatic with a beaut Super -Takumar 50mm f1.4 lens for $35 CDN.

    Then went to ebay and bought a M42 screw mount adapter to fit the lens to my EOS Rebel XT.

    The adapter was .99p and after shipping the total came to $18 canadian. So I got a 50mm f1.4 for $53 CDN.

    The canon 50mm f1.4 goes for $500CDN

    The only drawback is a lack of f-stop readout in the viewfinder and no AF. But I can still use the shutterspeed dial and set on manual to get a proper exposure.

    It rocks! :D

    Here's some pics:

    I also bought one of these adapters to use my old Pentax lenses on my Rebel XT. It works good, but I'd rather have an AF Zoom lens, so I sold my Pentax lenses.

    If anyone would like my adapter, PM me. I'll drop it in an envelope for $10 - what I paid for it.
