I have a m5 mark iii and mc20

Can you explain how you modify the 16mm tube to be compatible with the mc20?


It must be the Pixco brand. You just use a sharp knife or a dremel to shave off some of the interior of the 16mm tube to allow the lens of the MC-20 to fit inside.


Thanks for sharing, I suspected dremeling... Was that Pixco selected because compatibility issues?

Yes, PIXCO is the brand that works if you dremel out the inside of the 16mm.  OR, you can use a 10mm and the 16mm if you connect the 10mm first and then the 16, and then you don't have to adjust the 16mm inside.  However, that's one extra connection that isn't needed for spacing issues - and I prefer the fewer connections the better.
