Summary this is very cheap macro lens, you can use it on your camera, you need only adapter from m39 screw to your camera mount. Lens has no focusing mechanism, you have to move the camera to focusing,  diaphragm 3.5-11. You can increase macro level using extended tubes.
Good luck!

I ordered the 40.5mm UV on ebay and then stick it on the ring and my camera would look like:

 If you're a little afraid to disassemble the lens, you can always order a new lens unit, you can find it on ebay
