m42 to infinity?
Dec 8, 2005

Hi Folks,

Is there an m42 adapter mount that will let you focus to infinity? I'm doing some research here and read a few posts on dyxum on the matter, but it's confusing with all the different makes.

Lets see...there are a few adapters to link to:


I'm told this is too tight on the 7D but works on other film AF cameras..can anyone confirm?

Generic (@ B&H)


One report implied this wouldn't focus to infinity?

Technik (Ukraine)


Haven't heard much about this specifically.

Do any of these focus to infinity? Any comments on which works better? I've got a couple of SMC Takumar prime lenses (50mm,300mm) that I would love to play with.
