Fotodiox Pro Type 1 engages aperture button, doesn't interfere with aperture ring, and hard stops at infinity with Fuji 50 1.4 This adapter works with Fuji M42 lenses. Not only does it press the aperture button, it also doesn't interfere with the aperture ring on the newest (last) version of the Fuji 50mm f1.4, which the cheaper M42 adapters do. It is engineered perfectly on the E mount side and the M42 side tightens snugly and achieves perfect infinity with all of my lenses.The first cheap adapter I used required the lens to be tightened very tight to achieve infinity focus. When the lens was screwed in that tight the aperture ring couldn't be turned. Also, the lens was upside down (see photos attached to this review), requiring me to flip my camera over to see what aperture it was set on. It also failed to press the aperture button on that Fuji lens.This Fotodiox Pro Type 1 presses the levers and buttons that enable aperture on all of my M42 lenses. It works with all of my Pentax (I don't have the 50mm f1.4 Takumar), Fuji, and Russian lenses. 5Great fit and works well with heavy lenses! Forget those cheap ones from China; have 2 of those and the wiggle and can allow heavier lenses to actually SEPARATE from the body of the camera! This nearly resulted in a lens falling onto the ground, but luckily I caught it. This adapter is much wider, sturdier, holds even my heavier zoom lenses, and has a tripod mount to take the stress off the camera body. This is important, especially if using a lightweight M43 or a mirrorless camera like Sony NEX. I plan to buy another one without the tripod mount for easier grip when the tripod isn't needed. Highly recommend this one! 5WOW! Despite some "character flaws" this adapter is a MUST if you own a SONY with IBS and non stabilized lenses from others. Simply the least expensive way to use MF lenses on a SONY mirror less camera and use the In Body Stabilization where the lens has NONE!.The lens fits as correctly as it does on it's own body, All manual operations were available for use, and infinity focus was good. I used a Hasselblad 350 mm lens on a Sony A7RII and it was "magic" Gained at least 2 maybe even 3 stops of vibration control with the SONY IBS sensor y. I loved it.Safety note...Don't leave it mounted with a large lens without a "lens sitter".Loss of 1st star. The amount of surface area on the adapter that was allotted to the tripod mount is too small. Someone will lose a lens with this design. A redesign for the mount that increases the surface area, should be seriously considered. Loss of 2nd star.Tripod mount thread is 1/4 x 20 and not the industry standard for a tripod of 3/8" That will also contribute to a lost lens at some time.Having said that..follow the safety note above and you will really enjoy what this adapter can do.if you have a SONY and other non stabilized lenses.That factor alone, might be a NIKON buster for me sometime down the line. In the mean time I get to use a lot of non-stabilized lenses. On a very nice body. 3Well Machined and Engineered This adapter is precision machined and fits with no wiggle on the lens and camera. However, the iris causes vignetting when closed more than 30%, so I consider that feature superfluous and don't use it.I shoot all my lenses wide open when attached to this adapter and adjust exposure using shutter speed alone. If you want to use your lenses stopped down, you'll either have to pre-adjust them on a Canon camera before mounting them on this adapter, or pay $400 for a much more sophisticated adapter.For precise mounting of Canon lenses to the Sony camera, it does the job quite well. If you shoot with wide open aperture, it's all you need. I only gave it 3 stars because the adjustable iris is, for practical purposes, useless.Update: The rotating iris ring give an f/stop range of approximately 4 f/stops to control light entry onto the sensor, but I'm not sure it gives much change in terms of depth of field. As for the vignetting, I have been able to successfully correct for it in post capture processing using Lightroom 4. I would definitely buy this again, but without the expectation that the iris will offer the same kind of control an internal iris does in the lens. 3Bottom line: Works, doesn't tear up my gear. First the good:-Fit is perfect in my opinion, not tearing up my gear but not jiggling when installed.-No light leak-De-click mode (I really like this and don't care what exact aperture I'm in)-Dampening is right where it should be (IMO) which is too hard to adjust with one finger but easy with two. This could vary between copies I suppose.My click aperture only clicks in one direction, the other direction has a chunky feel.The sorta good, sorta bad:-Light leaks and reflections have been solved with a new blackout inner sleeve which is great, but mine came unattached to the inside of the adapter. It had a tiny bit of grease on the end (makes sense, at a friction point with the adapter innards) but that made it annoying to fix which I did with some 2-part black/gray epoxy, because I had to clean it dry for the glue to stick. It wouldn't be necessary to glue it down as it can't make contact with the Sony sensor but I didn't want the thing falling out every time I took the adapter off the camera (which is often for me since the rest of my Nikon glass is D series and has its own aperture adjustment.I think it's a tad overpriced for having to glue in the blackout sleeve and not coming with a rear cap. But there really aren't many options when you get down to it. If I could do it over again I'd grab a helicoid adapter with aperture adjustment for just a little more money because that opens up some more namebrands (although not all on Amazon, head over ot B&H and Adorama for some of these) and because close focus is super fun! Good luck with your decision. 4Excellent After reading some of the other reviews, I was a bit reluctant to order this, but I am glad I did. I am very fussy on product quality, and this adapter exceeded my expectations. It is very well-made, from brass and stainless steel. It fits on my NEX-6 with a nice, solid feel - just like attaching a Sony lens. Same with attaching a Nikkor lens to the front. I've had no issues with lenses or the adapter being too tight and sticking or with it being too loose. The blue aperture ring has been updated, and now has 6 click stops. It rotates with a smooth, precise feel. Mine does not pull-apart like another reviewer's adapter did.I purchased this adapter so that I could use my Nikkor AI-S prime lenses from an old Nikon film camera. So far, it is working great, and photos taken with the Nikkor lenses look fantastic.It comes with no instructions, so here's how to use it, after attaching your Nikkor lens:1) Set your NEX camera to "A" or aperture priority.2) If your Nikkor lens has an aperture ring (older manual focus Nikkors), rotate the adapter's blue ring to the far right / smallest aperture setting. Now rotate the Nikkor lens aperture ring to the desired f-stop. The NEX will select the shutter speed needed to get the correct exposure.3) If you're using a newer autofocus Nikkor "G" lens from a current Nikon DX digital camera, just rotate the blue ring to the desired f-stop - wide-open to the left, stopped-down to the right. The NEX will pick the shutter speed.4) If you prefer, you can also set your NEX to "M" or Manual exposure, where you choose both the shutter speed and f-stop.5) Remember, your autofocus lens will not autofocus with this adapter, so move the button on the side of your Nikkor lens from "A" (autofocus) to "M" (manual) and focus the old-fashioned way by manually turning the focus ring on the front of your lens. If you turn on "Peaking Focus" in your NEX setup menu, it will tell you when an object is in focus by forming a colored "halo" around the object. You can choose a yellow, red or white halo from the NEX menu.None of these lens adapters have any glass or optics. There are other brands that sell for hundreds of dollars, but I can't think of how they could possibly perform any better than this inexpensive adapter. 5Not worth the price. Buy chinese adapters, test and return until you find one that is not garbage. It seems well built, powder coated and with a minimalist design. Certainly more well built than other chinese adapters.The mount on the camera, however, is too tight and the wide chrome base does not match the Sony bodies.The inner face of the lens mount is chrome also, so it can produce reflecitons that hit your sensor. I painted it with a black marker.The flange focal distance is too short by a fair bit, causing your lenses to focus past infinity and causing zoom lenses to not hold focus as you zoom in and out. I have lost some very good pictures because of that. They are lost forever because I was abroad on vacation and I blame myself for not checking the infinity focus beforehand. I had cheaper chinese adapters that did not have this issue.The tripod mount was stuck in the hole at the base of the adapter and I had to use a clamp to take it off. Not for the faint of heart.The only real thing I like about it is the lack of light leak. This plagues other adapters and will ruin your long exposure pictures. 2Fits on newer Alpha cameras, unlike the more expensive competition. Much better than the non-pro Fotodiox version. Having tried several FD -> E-Mount adapters from other brands, I can only recommend this one. I sampled two units from a certain other brand that cost almost 2x as much for their adapters (****bones) and both units from the other brand had out of tolerance E-mounts and the FD mount side stuck on the lens when being removed. I also tried the non-pro Fotodiox version of this adapter, and the lever was positioned backwards (oops). This adapter, on the other hand, worked on all of my Sony Alpha cameras and fit perfectly on my Angeniuex FD zoom.Fotodiox has generally been a decent brand for me, and although I have paid ~$1,000 for the more expensive "other" brand adapters over the past few years, I also have a collection of Fotodiox adapters that have served me very well and cost a fraction of what I spend on the competing brand. The biggest issue I had with Fotodiox's non-pro adapters was the coating on the interior of the adapter, which didn't do a good job on reflections. This adapter is much better in that regard, however the screw holes for the support should not be drilled through.I'm taking one point off for the screw-hole issue, and the fact that the interior portion of the iris lock is blue anodized and not painted matte. If fotodiox can blind tap the tripod support and paint the interior of the lock lever I think this mount will be excellent. 4Lightest of three different OM to Sony E-mount adapters Here are my observations for these adapters:1) All of my Zuiko lenses are sitting too far from the sensor - Infinity focus happens when their distance scales are at about 7 meters. This is not really an issue when manual focusing, but I can't rely on a lens barrel's Infinity stop. It's a good thing the Sony a6000 has Focus Peaking and Ficus Magnification - they are absolutely necessary for manual focusing at Infinity using these adapters.2) All of my Zuiko lenses can be focused more closely than on an OM body. This somewhat compensates the Infinity-focus problem. :-)3) All of my vintage zoom lenses lack the resolution that can be captured by the Sony a6000 24MP sensor. They are just soft, even in the center at f/8, even though they were mire than acceptable with film.4) Only five of my Zuiko primes are up to the task: 50mm f/1.8, 50mm f/3.5 Macro, 55mm f/1.2, 200mm f/4 and 300mm f/4.5. The rest are too soft, wide open, but ridiculously better at f8. The 50mm f/3.5 Macro and the 200mm f/4 are spectacular with the Sony a6000 (at 77mm and 308mm equivalents).5) The OM to E-mount adapter exacts about a 1/2-stop loss of speed from the vintage lenses, much as would any extension tube. It's not a problem, thanks to good high-ISO performance.6) Many lenses made for digital sensors are designed to deliver the light as perpendicularly as possible - to avoid the CA (chromatic aberration) "purple fringing" seen with lenses that were designed for film. I'm getting a lot of CA in the corners of the frame, but it's easily fixed in Photoshop. Note: There's no CA by shooting at f/8 instead of wide open.I bought this Fotodiox Pro adapter after first buying and testing the K&F Concepts adapter and the Fotodiox (not Pro) adapter - for comparison and find them to be essentially identical in quality and function, so far, except the blades that engage the adapter to the camera body are about twice as thick with the K&F Concepts adapter and this Fotodiox Pro adapter, where the blades for the Fotodiox (not Pro) adapter are quite thin - which leads me to believe the K&F Concepts adapter (or this Fotodiox Pro adapter) would be the better choice when mounting a heavy lens (or perhaps any lens). Otherwise, the most significant difference is their weights. The aluminum and brass K&F Concepts adapter weighs 3.5 oz. The aluminum Fotodiox adapter weighs 3.2 oz. and this Fotodiox Pro weighs 3.1 oz. See photos...All three adapters have a length of 33mm, from the body mount to the lens mount, and again, they all focus well short of Infinity.Again, the blades that engage the adapter to the Sony camera body are the same thickness for this Fotodiox Pro and the K&F Concepts, but are much thinner (for some reason) with the Fotodiox (not Pro) adapter. Oddly, they all feel the same when attaching lenses or when attaching to the camera body.If I had to do it all over again and money were no object, I would get this Fotodiox Pro, due to its being the lightest of the three at 3.1 oz. vs. 3.2 and 3.5 oz and having thick blades, rather than skinny blades. But the K&F Concepts comes out on top for the price conscious, with thick blades similar to this Fotodiox Pro, but weighing 3.5 oz. instead of 3.1 oz. I would avoid the Fotodiox (not Pro) adapter due to its thin blades, where attached to the camera body - they do not inspire confidence. Again, the blades are thicker with this Fotodiox Pro and the K&F Concepts adapter. 4Exakta mount issues... This review is for the Exakta to Sony E mount adapter.This mount adapter may not fit all Exakta lenses without modifications. This was the case with my Mamiya-Sekor 58mm f/1.7.As shown in the photos, the blue locking lever would not engage with the locking pin on the lens. Using a small round file, I was able to open up the slot, allowing proper engagement of the locking mechanism.Additionally, the lens would not fully seat on the adapter due to the protruding auto iris mechanism. Rather than modifying my lens by removing the mechanism, I removed material from the mount adapter using an end mill.Making modifications to a brand new adapter that is not ideal, however with the proper tools these mods are easy and take little time. I realize not all exakta lenses are built identical, so modifying the adapt didn't bother me too much. 4

I'm getting a lot of CA in the corners of the frame, but it's easily fixed in Photoshop. Note: There's no CA by shooting at f/8 instead of wide open.I bought this Fotodiox Pro adapter after first buying and testing the K&F Concepts adapter and the Fotodiox (not Pro) adapter - for comparison and find them to be essentially identical in quality and function, so far, except the blades that engage the adapter to the camera body are about twice as thick with the K&F Concepts adapter and this Fotodiox Pro adapter, where the blades for the Fotodiox (not Pro) adapter are quite thin - which leads me to believe the K&F Concepts adapter (or this Fotodiox Pro adapter) would be the better choice when mounting a heavy lens (or perhaps any lens). Otherwise, the most significant difference is their weights. The aluminum and brass K&F Concepts adapter weighs 3.5 oz. The aluminum Fotodiox adapter weighs 3.2 oz. and this Fotodiox Pro weighs 3.1 oz. See photos...All three adapters have a length of 33mm, from the body mount to the lens mount, and again, they all focus well short of Infinity.Again, the blades that engage the adapter to the Sony camera body are the same thickness for this Fotodiox Pro and the K&F Concepts, but are much thinner (for some reason) with the Fotodiox (not Pro) adapter. Oddly, they all feel the same when attaching lenses or when attaching to the camera body.If I had to do it all over again and money were no object, I would get this Fotodiox Pro, due to its being the lightest of the three at 3.1 oz. vs. 3.2 and 3.5 oz and having thick blades, rather than skinny blades. But the K&F Concepts comes out on top for the price conscious, with thick blades similar to this Fotodiox Pro, but weighing 3.5 oz. instead of 3.1 oz. I would avoid the Fotodiox (not Pro) adapter due to its thin blades, where attached to the camera body - they do not inspire confidence. Again, the blades are thicker with this Fotodiox Pro and the K&F Concepts adapter. 4Exakta mount issues... This review is for the Exakta to Sony E mount adapter.This mount adapter may not fit all Exakta lenses without modifications. This was the case with my Mamiya-Sekor 58mm f/1.7.As shown in the photos, the blue locking lever would not engage with the locking pin on the lens. Using a small round file, I was able to open up the slot, allowing proper engagement of the locking mechanism.Additionally, the lens would not fully seat on the adapter due to the protruding auto iris mechanism. Rather than modifying my lens by removing the mechanism, I removed material from the mount adapter using an end mill.Making modifications to a brand new adapter that is not ideal, however with the proper tools these mods are easy and take little time. I realize not all exakta lenses are built identical, so modifying the adapt didn't bother me too much. 4
