5.0 out of 5 stars Works well, well made!
Got it before stated date of delivery, in fact it was very rapid! Slotted it on my Canon 350d and tried my older M42 lenses and was very pleased! Much easier than I thought it would be! Must go and read up on manual mode, dof f stops etc!! reccomended product.

This review is from: M42 pentax, Carl Zeiss, Praktica, Mamiya Lens to Canon Eos 1D 1Ds 5D 6D 7D,70D 50D,60D,1200D 1100D 100D 600D 550D 650D 700D adapter Ring. (Electronics)
This adaptor simply works, allowing me to connect my old M42 lenses to my EOS 550D. This is good because M42 lenses are a cheap good quality alternative to modern Canon/Sigma/etc. lenses. There is no focus confirmation like some other adaptors, but I didn't want that. Autofocus is not possible when shooting the night sky anyway. Some of my M42 lenses have what they call an Auto pin, used by older M42 cameras to activate the aperture blades. Some adaptors are not designed to activate this pin, but newer ones like this one do. So I can alter the f-stop manually on all my M42 lenses whether "auto" or not.

If you are happy to do without focus confirmation, then this cheap alternative is great. The chunky metal feels solid and reliable even with heavy 200mm lenses. I have two of these now.

Well maybe that's a bit OTT but this does what it says on the tin. Works well with my 550d and have used an M42 Zenith 58mm with it. Great.

I have bought 4 of these now and they work very well. Great value for money but steep delivery cost! Simple to use and so far, easy to get on and off my Canon 40d DSLR.

The speed of delivery for this product was amazing. Other suppliers should try and match the delivery speed of this company, they would have more returning customers.

As for the product it has enabled me to fit my three older M42 thread lenses to my Canon, what a great idea.

Used to connect a couple of old Pentax lenses (Super Takumar 55mm) to a Canon 60D. No issues for me, fits both mounts perfectly and does the job

Mounts M42 lenses easily. Solid metal mount. Unfortunately the adapter is too thick and thus does not allow infinity focus.

The product as such is ok and works with all my m42 lenses, but unfortunately it is difficult to detach the adapter from the camera.

I am very happy with this, fitted an old Helios 50mm lens to a Canon EOS 650D. noticed, as with some other reviews, some loose metal filings on the threads of the adaptor, cleaned it before use. it fits the camera body without a struggle, and the lens fits onto it easily. no problems.
