Registration distance varied between makes. Konica I think had the shortest, Nikon the longest so that effects the lenght of the adapter, and the extent to which the lens had to be a retro-focus design. I think that is why the Konica lenses are so popular here-shortest registration distance thus designed more like a ragefindere lens.

Konica AR mount has about 2mm longer registration distance than 4/3 registration distance. Nikon f has about 6mm longer registration distance than Konica.

Konica rangefinder lenses have much shorter registration distance (like all RF lenses), but those lenses are also pricey
