Re: The M42 adapter used on Nikon F can make a huge difference

The register distances listed ( thanks !) are correct in as much as the M43 and Nikon F ; I 
Nikon F DSLR is not a good mount for adapting for these reasons.Sadly I see no way to adapt a Pentax or Minolta to Nikon F without some focus issues. I like the Nikon brand but would choose a different brand ( Fuji or Sony perhaps) with a shorter register so adapter electability wasn't problematic over a wide brand of lenses.

Bear in mind, this was my second DSLR, and first full-frame, which I bought very soon after it came out in late 2014. So adapted lenses were not even a thought when that went down. Nikon is fine for this, and I am certainly going to go mirrorless in my next upgrade. Z6 or Z7, at which point I will get infinity focus like other mirrorless users. I see Z6s going for roughly $1100 on ebay, so that will be my most likely route.
