Is it possible you can tell me what I might need and maybe where to find one?
I am also wondering if this should be an "in person" purchase or would the web be OK.

Just buy an adapter. The lens is manual everything so you have nothing to loose with a dumb adapter. I shoot many different bodies but my main rig is a Canon. I'll be using this on a NEX and a M43 with dumb adapters. Just set the lens for f/8 and shoot away.
Great find OP!

|monster888||You don't need to focus with this lens. Set it to f/8 and 3-5ft and everything will be in focus. Not sure if the optics is identical to the regular version, but the lens is soft until f/8.|

I loved the regular version of this lens. IIRC, the difference between this one and the other 8mm is that this one does't click when changing the aperture for a more silent operation. I loved how sharp the lens was at f/5.6 - f/8.
If I didn't upgrade to a FF camera, I wouldn't have sold my 8mm. It works, but I wasn't fond of having to crop.
