What is very important is the manufacturing precision of the adapter. Adapters made by Voigtlander and Metabones for the lenses listed above are considered very precise. If the adapter length is not correct (which is the case with many other brand and no-brand adapters), the focus distance shown on the lens will not be the correct focus distance. This is usually referred to as incorrect infinity-focus, but it applies to all focus distances and all lenses.

For landscapes the adapter inaccuracy can be a trap, but else I think it is rather unimportant, since you focus manually.
