Enna München MC Ennalyt 90mm f/2.5
This was my first ever projector lens and a great example of a typical lens from a reasonably modern full size 35mm slide projector. It makes a great macro lens with a standard M42 to Sony adapter, and an equally good lens for normal focussing distances using an ultra-slim M42 to Sony adapter. I paid £10 + £3 &p for mine. The best £10 I ever spent!
I used the following adapters to mount this lens on my Sony mirrorless camera:
- An M52-M42 36-90mm focusing helicoid available from Amazon or eBay
- A standard M42 to Sony E mount adapter available on Amazon or eBay
- An ultra-slim M42 to Sony E mount adapter available on Amazon or eBay
See the 35mm slide projector lenses page for more information on using 35mm slide projector lenses on digital cameras.
