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?

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.

Thanks,
Damian
