You gotta learn how to do black-and-white processing! Supposedly saves you loads.

Also, are your M42 lenses aligned properly on the Ricoh and the Canon? My Peleng 8mm F3.5 fisheye's top line and DOF markings are 9 'o clock position from the front view, and it won't turn clockwise any more. Wondering if it's my adapter or the lens; focusing is otherwise accurate.

Yeah, i heard about that too. But do i want to invest in a shit load of time and money (equipment, film, scanning) for that? I looking at an EOS 350D.

ANd i have that problem too. The angle does not match, although the angle is less severe. The screw tapping process was probably not done carefully to adjust for the bayonet position.
