Adapter heights

Hi MT, below is a link to a table of flange distances for different camera mounts; from that you can compute the height of a given adapter on a NEX, by subtracting the NEX's 18mm flange distance. For example, a Konica AR lens has a flange distance of 40.7mm. Subtracting 18mm results in an adapter height of 22.7mm, on a NEX.

I posted some samples from a Konica 50/1.4 on a NEX-5 here:
