Oh sweet, tilt will be awesome and the price for it was low. so I just had to get that. went for a run of the mill (with tripod mount) m42 as well sice my m42 is mostly for macro (bellows), and I don't really need infinity if the adapter is sloppy.

I caved in on my NEX-7 when the preffered store sent an sms about nex 7 beeing in stock. so now I .. wel.. need adapters for my md/mc lenses, and for m42 (screw mount, don't mistake that for micro four thirds)

I bought this for M42:

A little heavy, but good.

I am thinking of a tilting adapter for MD myself:

I think they might have increased their prices, seems more expensive than I remembered... perhaps you can find cheaper alternatives on ebay... when checking now I can see that the same store are selling the same thing much cheaper there item 200634384634 FWIW.
