Introduction

M42, also known as the Praktica or Universal thread mount, was a standard lens mount for 35mm film cameras introduced by Praktica in 1938. It was adopted by many other camera manufacturers, including Pentax, Ricoh, and Yashica. M42 lenses are still popular among photographers today for their high quality and relatively low cost.

Wide angle lenses are a great way to capture expansive landscapes, architectural interiors, and large groups of people. They can also be used to create dramatic perspectives and interesting distortions.

There are a number of great M42 wide angle lenses available. Here are a few of the best:

  • SMC Takumar 28mm f/3.5

  • Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 20mm f/2.8
