I think you are suffering from Cheap Chinese Adapter Defect Syndrome. I will have to add your symptom to my collection of other defects, including failure to focus to infinity, focusing beyond infinity, leaking light, tripod mount falling off, etc.

You get what you pay for. I checked the Metabones website, and their adapters for Nikon F and Canon EF have springs, not shoddy little "you adjust it with a knife or screwdriver" slots. They don't seem to have an adapter for Minolta MD to NEX. It's had to tell for sure, but the Novoflex adapter seems to have springs also. Fotodiox is simply a higher grade of Chinese adapter. Even their higher-end Fotodiox Pro uses the slot method.
