The Adapted Lens Talk forum is the place where to ask. Many M42 users there.

Thanks for the hint. I had never looked there before, seems interesting.

But you needn't restrict yourself to M42 just because you have that adapter. For 20 bucks you can get adapters for allmost any mount and those do the job just as well.

Obviously, but in the OP I did express the desire to keep that adapter.

Is it a Novoflex adapter? I'm asking because every now an then I'm tempted to get one. But they really are expensive for a 'dumb' adapter.

It's a K&F Concept:

Currently discounted at US $24.99.

One caveat: with my Zeiss 35mm Flektogon on the Lumix DC-G9 the flange to sensor distance is wrong - infinity focus is reached well before the lens stop. No idea why, haven't measured anything yet. With focus magnification/peaking these things become less bothersome, eh?
