5.0 out of 5 stars Oops! Armageddon., 26 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Truly frightening - I've read a first hand account of someone who was in his home 500 metres from Ground Zero in Hiroshima, this book just reinforces my view that these weapons are unnecessary (i.e. they haven't stopped the continuing wars on this planet) and exceedingly dangerous to possess.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly as described, 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed a way to convert an early Helios 44 lens with an M39 style screw mount to M42 (the flange to focus distance is approximately the same) and it works as advertised.

I needed a better backpack for storage of my lenses and camera and this provides that as well as incorporating a weatherproof cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin, er,... box., 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It fits near perfectly, there's a very slight amount of rotational play but it clamps tight to the camera body. The only caution I would mention is that some M42 lens types - i.e. some Russian Helios lenses and others that protrude far enough to the rear when focused to infinity that they can catch the mirror on a full frame body like the 5D MKII/III. For most lenses it works fine.

1.0 out of 5 stars 7.2v versus implied ("high power") 7.6v manufacturers part, 21 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not impressed, response from support line not the least bit inspiring of confidence in being dealt with fairly, so I've kept the parts and will see how long they last.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fitting sequel to the Sparrow, 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Children Of God (Kindle Edition)
The continuing tale of the contrast between religious belief and science fact with a further elaboration of how our own built-in prejudices and beliefs can skew our perception of others actions - in particular those of species distinctly alien to ours.
