Which cameras are compatible with the Zenit lens?

Zenit lenses have an M42 screw mount, making them compatible with certain cameras such as the Cosina, Mamiya, Pentax, Praktika, Ricoh, Yashica, and Zenit models. When used with an adaptor, they can also work with selected Canon, Minolta, Nikon, and Olympus cameras. Please keep in mind that in the case of certain adaptors, only manual settings may work.

Take note that photos may be cropped when used with non-full frame DSLR cameras.
