Here is a list of most useful M42 lenses resources on the net. Don't be afraid to suggest other links ;)

http://m42.artlimited.net/
M42 is a site dedicated to M42 adaptator lenses. You will find here tests, from argentic to numeric cameras and oldest to newest M42 lenses.
Members described their work and the used lens. Oldies, but goldies!

Discuss how to buy, fix, clean, and use all the old manual focus photography kit you can find.
You will find many useful suggestion here about repairing old lenses. Well worth visiting for all m42 users.

Thanks Kiklop, that will be wonderful to have these links in one place!

A couple more - this one is good for older cameras you might acquire while amassing your M42 lens collection, instructions!

Here is another link with excellent lens and camera history - might be linked also from one of the given sites above, not sure.

Here's another one I like;

I would like to add this one:
http://www.m-fortytwo.info/ViewingOptions.php

You find database with Pentax M42 lenses and cameras. One could see what version of the Takumar at what SN to find. It is useful reference for eBay auctions, where the sellers do not always share the full info, but from the picture you could see the SN.

Thanks Kiklop!

A website where you can find some information on some russian lenses. Unfortunately not all are accessible but it is still useful :
http://www.zenit-foto.ru/english/index.htm

And more on russian lenses there:
http://medfmt.8k.com/mf/ruslens.html
http://www.commiecameras.com/

Did I mention I liked russian lenses? (this one is in Russian...)
http://zenit.istra.ru/catalog/lenseslist.html

One link in German, still on... Well, you know!

This site gives the relative film-to-flange for just about all lens mounts:

All SLR Film-to-Flange distances

I was looking at that earlier today. From that you can deduce that the thickness of the flange on any 42mm to minolta AF adapter should be .96mm

M42 screw M42x1 thread      45.46
Minolta AF     bayonet      44.50

But it also states
Pentax/Practica     M42x1 thread     45.46 add allowance for film = 45.50

Which could explain why some adapters are made slightly too thick

I do get a blank page as well now.
I don't know when that started, as I haven't visited the site lately (at least not this week ).

I hope it will be back soon...

Nice!

I was seriously thinking about creating a new site about m42 lenses since it was down for several weeks.
