Fotodiox is simply a higher grade of Chinese adapter. Even their higher-end Fotodiox Pro uses the slot method.

Not sure about that statement - this adaptor uses leaf spring:

But $80 is kinda overkill for an adapter..

I bought a Fotodiox MD adapter for my NEX-5N a couple of months ago and though the picture here looks like flanges, I just looked at mine and it has springs. For ~$20US plus shipping.
