The one that has the marks in the coating works better than the one that has no marks, not much, but enough to see the difference wide open. It's an M42 mount so I now use it with one of these adapters and it allows much closer focusing. But I see the price went up $11 since I bought mine. But I may have purchased mine on Amazon.

I have the same adapter/helicoid and works really well. Mine is branded Fotasy and sold in USA by Rainbowimaging for $26 http://www.ebay.com/itm/M42-Lens-to-Panasonic-GH3-GH4-G3-G5-G7-GM1-Adapter-Macro-Focusing-Helicoid-/331900029066?hash=item4d46c8888a:g:WfcAAOSwwo1Xei-G

Yes, I have the one from Fotasy too. My Kecay is a little smoother, both are nice and firm when twisting them, but it most likely do to variation. Rainbowimaging blocked me from making purchases from them because I returned an adapter (not the helicoid) that fit loose on one side and allowed the lens and adapter to wiggle. It wiggled on both my EM5 Mll and EM10. I guess they felt I was nit picking. There is plenty of other sellers out there
