I have removed lenses from cameras that are beyond repair and adapted them
to DSLR's. So far, I have successfully adapted a 50/2.8 Color-Solinar from
an Ambiflex and a 50/3.5 from a Voigtlander Vito B. These are the finished
lenses and images taken by them just a few minutes ago:

My Color-Skopar has separated rear elements. That's why I needed a donor

Opportunity is taken to thank my friendly Luggers who have volunteered to
come to my rescue, and, in particular John Lee who has agreed to supply me
with the appropriate one.

Thanks for viewing and your comments.

Have a great weekend!

Joe Leung
