Well-made adapter, but for one flaw...
on July 11, 2010
The adapter is very well made and fits better than most from other sources. However, it has one very irritating flaw. The M42 thread on the examples I bought are off by roughly 60 degrees, meaning that instead of the distance scale marker sitting at the top, it now sits well to the right. The A/M lever is now also very difficult to use, as it in turn sits at the top, right under the "extension" for the flash.
I have contacted Fotodiox about this, but no response.
For the casual M42 lens user, this adapter is recommended. But for the use-M42-lenses-daily user (like myself), the search for a good converter continues, as this isn't it.
