M42 Adapter Suggestion
Sep 16, 2011

Thought I would pass this on for others in search of a M42 Screw type adapter. I am using Takumar lenses.

This is a simple adapter. I tried another that had 3 little screws so you could rotate the alignment of the lens. I did not like that one. This adapter does not have those screws but my lenses always align well and have focus to infinity.

It is from Kiwi. If you search on Ebay you will be able to find it (Adapter Zeiss Pentax Praktica M42 Lens To Sony NEX 3 5) . It may not be the cheapest (around $50) but it seems to work great for me. It is very lightweight and I am very happy with it.

Now I can try out my lenses!

Takumars --- 28mm F3.5, 35mm F3.5, 50mm F1.4, 105mm F2.8, & 135mm F3.5 plus the 50mm F4 macro.
