NX adapter for M42 and K mount from eBay

If you bought a working NX adapter for the K or M42 lens on ebay, can you tell us the seller? There are so many and I am not sure which one should I buy from. Thanks

I bought this NX/M42 adapter from Jinfinance

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/M42-Samsung-NX100-NX5-NX10-NX-mount-adapter-pin-push-/200595809629?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2eb471255d

It is well made and mine fits perfectly. Postage from China is slow so you need to be patient.

Jinfinance also sells an NX/Pentax K adapter

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Pentax-PK-K-lens-Samsung-NX10-NX-mount-adapter-/350364215407?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item519355a86f

It looks equally well made but I haven't tried it as I have the original Samsung one.

The above listings are on eBay Australia but Jinfinance also list on eBay USA. I'm not sure about Canada.

I've also bought the K adapter (which supports lenses that have no manual exposure adjustment ring)

from here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=400256069225

And while my copy was/is stiff it works well enough on my NX100.

The earlier one I bought (that does only supports lenses which do have a manual exposure adjustment ring) was bought from here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330541979242

And this fits more smoothly into the bayonet connections. It works well with the NX100 I have.

Re: NX adapter for M42 and K mount from eBay

There are quite a few incorrectly made NX adapters floating around. The adapter ends up fitting upside down and doesn't click into the proper detent for the lens lock........Big_IS (eBay seller) has now removed all their NX adapters and has refunded me of the few I've purchased.............there's a thread already posted where one user showed how to modify the adapter to work (simple fix).........I have a bunch of the adapters and was able to modify them to work correctly.

Just be warned a bunch are out that were made incorrectly and will need to be modified to work.

For the one with the aperture ring, can you change the aperture smoothly? What is the open and lock pin? Thanks

Re: NX adapter for M42 and K mount from eBay

i bought both on ebay and they were fine. But after i had the thought that it would have been cheaper to buy 1 and a m42/pk adaptor. Not used that set up myself,but might be an idea.

Re: NX adapter for M42 and K mount from eBay

I can now confirm the ebay NX adapters for the Konica AR mounts are also incorrectly machined.....my unit fits so tightly I can't turn the aperture ring on the lens- not good or useful!
Not having such good luck with the Chinese NX adapters as of late- buyer beware!

I found a 28mm f3.5 super-takumar from a craigslist ad for 10 bucks. This gave me the perfect excuse to buy a m42 adaptor. I was worried though that the adaptor looked just like the one mentioned in this post. This seller was awesome and the mount that he gave me works like a charm. He was fast and it was tracked from the point it hit customs to my door. I do think its luck of the draw, I have just been lucky with my Chinese adapters.
