I am in the market for an adapter for my A7r. I have two M-Mount Voigtlanders and I am considering buying some Zeiss as well but I am not sure which adapter to buy

  • Voigtlander: seems to be the "perfect" one since it lists which lenses are tested with it. But price is the sore point
  • Novoflex: Has a good build reputation but seems waaaay over priced.
  • Fotodiox Pro: the cheapest of them all but I don't know about their qualities

I know some of yous around here have some of them and I would like to get some feedback in build quality between them and if it is really worth buying a Voigtlander instead of Fotodiox and vice versa.

I use a Fotodiox as a standard adapter, which does the job without problems. It is good quality and solid, and at this price I can afford purchasing one for each of my M-mount lenses, which is better than sharing an expensive one between lenses.

I also purchased a Hawk's Factory helicoid which is excellent and of high quality. I usually reserve this adapter for close focusing, it strongly reduces the minimum focusing distance on RF lenses (it reduces the MFT on my Leitz Summaron 35mm from 1m to 0.3m).

Just my 0.02€
