    Picked this up from Ebay, figured the Canon 50/1.8 mount was worth the price alone. (I'm not telling!) The seller tested it on a Sony A7, turns out the seller also did the conversion.

    This person did an incredible job, I've asked about other services available. I'm hoping to find someone that takes care of Jupiters that I can refer people to.

    This lens is Shiny!

    Focus is smooth, and- the click stops are left in place. The optics rotate with the focus ring- meaning the very clever person removed part of the mechanism and came up with a way of setting the shim. Genious!

    Focus is perfect on my M9, across range.

    At F2,
