Any experience of the Fujica M42 mount to EOS Adaptor on NEX?
Nov 26, 2012

Hi I am new to this forum and am very excited to learn more about photography.

I just started switching from point and shoot to mirrorless interchangeables. And since probably my father or uncle has an old Fujica ST801 camera with a Fujica lens, I wanted to mount it on my NEX. But learnt that there's a small tab on the lens and so I couldn't mount it on my M42 adapter. I don't want to file the tab cause it fits in the ST801 and I don't want to damage the lens.

I wonder if it's possible to mount a Fuji M42 to EOS adaptor like this one:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Fujinon-Fujica-Fuji-M42-Mount-Lens-to-Canon-Eos-EF-5D-7D-550D-Camera-Adapter-/110878531992?pt=US_Lens_Adapters_Mounts_Tubes&hash=item19d0e02198

and then mount the m42 to EOS adaptor to an EOS to NEX adaptor.

If so anyone has experience with this and if there's any light leaking or other problems?

Thanks!

Samsung ST80
