Question about Cameras
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.

Testimonial: "a very good solution indeed.."
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...

The rollei 600x mount lenses communicate to the camera via the gold plated contacts. In addition, the 350mm PQS is a medium format lens. There is currently no such adapter.
