Reading the 40 preceding comments on this thread, I come away with the conclusion that no adapter, except perhaps the Novoflex, is reliably precise. No one has written a complaint about the performance of the Novoflex LEM/NEX adapter. Am I missing something? If we are spending mega bucks on the A&/A7r and plan on using expensive rangefinder lenses, isn't this thread a persuasive argument for the Novoflex--except masochists who don't mind the aggravation of having to buy and return defective products repeatedly until they get the odd good one, or who like to repeatedly disassemble lens mounts to find the right shim, or those who think focusing past the infinity setting is acceptable?

I'm sure there is sample variation with Novoflex too, though perhaps less.

(Anybody happen to know what the Novoflex weighs?)

If you live near a store that stocks them all and has a reasonable return policy, you could buy a few and keep the cheapest one that does the job.

Also: if you're willing to spend for the Novoflex, you might want to wait and see how the new Voightlander helicoid works out.
