Sorry, you can't. The Tair 300mm uses the M42 mount, while Nikon SLRs (film and digital) use the Nikon F mount. Due to the deeper flange distance of the Nikon mount, M42 lenses cannot be adapted to Nikon cameras without losing infinity focus.

    So you are sayn that It cant be used even with an adapter?

  • kakima Nov 27, 2012

    If you don't mind losing infinity focus then you can use an adapter such as this one:http://www.amazon.com/Screw-Mount-Nikon-...

You can use an M42 -> Nikon adapter. 2 cases : either you have an adapter without glass and you can't focus to infinity, or you have an adapter with a glass and you can focus to infinity with a loose of image quality. I see somewhere on the internet that on a Tair 300mm you can change the mount with an A / H adapter which can be used for TAIR-11A, Jupiter-11A, ... I have not yet tested that solution but I have a Tair and an A / H adapter...

    Some Tair 300mm lenses use a much bigger screw mount, between 52-65mm, get a kiev88 lens mount from Russia to fit it, price $a67

    The Tair 300mm is heavy I also had to convert the lens mount from 3/8 to 1/4 with a thread insert onto the Manfrotto heavy duty tripod, used a my camera bag hanging off the tripod, all up it redeced shutter/camera a lot, I have not used the 2x converter yet, because there is just too much weight of the lens mount, so might have to use the camera and lens resting on a sand bag or such. PS snapped the ligament in my knee 6 months ago so I have not been very mobile, to get out in the bush, just photos in the back yard. Initial tests seem to be very soft, but quite sharp given the restriction on traveling.

Yes and yes. Bear in mind that not all features may work. You probably won't get autofocus or metering with the Nikon D90, for example.

I have some old vivtar bayonet style lenses that have been in storage for the last 26 years are they compatible with any of the modern digital cameras


Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of camera mounts, most of which are bayonet style. What modern cameras they may work with depends on the lens mount. If the lenses have a Nikon mount, for example, they'll work with any Nikon DSLR. If they have a Minolta mount, they'll probably work with any Sony DSLR (Sony bought the photography business when Minolta went bankrupt). If the lenses have some other mount then they'll probably work with cameras using the same mount.

I have a nikon mount AF 70-300 quantaray lens that I am trying to find a mount so that it can fit onto my sony alpha DSLR camera. Does this exist? Will a simple T mount fix my problem?


A simple T mount adapter will NOT work, since your lens doesn't have a T-mount.

If your lens has an aperture ring then something like this will work.

You'll see more information here.

What's your pwill Tamron AF 1780 Lens 80mm - 210 work on a sony 200A dslrmmroblem?


you need a proper t2 adapter. when you remove the m42 adaptor on tair lens, you can attach the proper t2 to nikon adaptor on it. check my tair 300 photo. it has "t2 to m42" adapter on it. please be sure that find the correct adapter. i bought several adapters to find the correct one. one of them was different than t2 adapter but looking alike and sold as t2 by seller. it is hard to find the correct adapter. i guess there are variants of that standard(which is odd).
