How do you focus this lens??... does not appear to have a focus ring.

The link that you provided is for a Digital SLR Lens and you Don't want to use DSLR lenses with 35mm adapters. Only true, manual focus, 35mm Film, SLR lenses. The way I understand it, DigitalSLR lenses create images that are for a electronic sensor that is much smaller than the image target on 35mm cameras. I don't think you'd even fill up the image diffuser/ground glass on one of these adapters with a DSLR lens. Also, you want your lenses to be as fast as you can afford. The faster the better. I wouldn't go above f2.0 but some adapter users have slower lenses that achieve good results.
Can anyone else add to this?:hv20-smilie51:
Here are some zooms to look at:
And here are some fixed focal lengths (or primes) which are more widely used with adapters

I posted ebay links to several here: http://hv20.com/showpost.php?p=21576&postcount=5
They're mostly primes, but the last one is a zoom. It's f/3.2-4.5, so a little on the slowish side, but not too bad. You'd be hard pressed to find anything faster in a zoom without spending a bunch more money..
