Product Details


Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Fotodiox M42-MFT Lens adapter allows you to place your favorite M42 Lens on your Micro Four Thirds (MFT) camera body. This adapter gives you the ability to use your irreplaceable prime lens and saves you the cost of purchasing new lenses. The adapters are precision made to insure the perfect fit. The lens will fit physically, but the automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, and other functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. In this case, -Inch stop-down mode-Inch will need to be used when metering, since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot in manual or aperture priority mode. Infinity focusing is guaranteed.

Product Description

If you have a SLR or DSLR camera and other maker/mount lenses, the Fotodiox Mount Adapters allow you to use your lenses on the film/digital camera body. Sharing lenses has some distinct advantages. Certain prime lens just can't be replaced, and you save cost of purchase lenses. ­Fotodiox offers a range of adapter from large format to smaller format digital adapters. Adapting larger format lens, i.e., large format - medium format, medium format - 35mm, excellent edge-to-edge sharpness; and the smaller 24x36 mm image field helps minimize the effects of lens distortion and aberration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, quality adapter. July 16 2014
Verified Purchase
Nice little adapter. Solid and has a feel of quality. Works perfectly with my GH4 and a few old M42 lenses I have - Pentax Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4, Zeiss Biotar 58mm f/2, Jupiter 9 85mm f/2. Also shipped very quickly.

Does not align with the top of the circle, but that has no effect on how it works. Works well with my old Sears/Ricoh 135mm f2.8.

Adapter is well made...Does exactly as designed.
Small negative item - Dot on adapter to line up installation on MFT camera should be on outside of adapter instead of inside.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job but be wary with heavy lenses. Jan. 17 2011
By Biletnikoff - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This adapter does exactly what I want it to do. I did have a problem when using a heavier 200mm Takumar lens. Although I was being cautious at one point the weight of the lens caused the inner bracing ring to pop out. I simply re-inserted it and tightened the 3 small screws and it is working fine again. Now all those old Pentax screw-mounts I have are getting a new rebirth. I highly recommend the Fotodiox adapters. They're not expensive and they make quick delivery.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly machined--prevents proper focus and setting of aperture June 28 2010
By A. Rabun - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Fotodiox is normally a top-quality producer, so it may be that I have a bad unit but tested it too late to make a return. In any case, the product causes any M42 lens that I mount to be unable to focus...the ring gets stiff at either end whereas when mounted to a true M42 mount camera (such as my Mamiya DSX 1000) there are no issues. I had this problem with every M42 mount lens I own, meaning that this adapter is useless. The same stiffness is present when setting the aperture.
I have had no issues with any other Fotodiox product before this particular adapter, so do not take this product review to be a negative assessment of all Fotodiox products, which are typically exceptional in quality.

I can focus to infinity with all my M42 lenses. It's built like a tank. Does everything I need it to.

I have no issues with this adapter. It fits both my camera and lens very well with no play and it's not bad looking. This is really all that I can ask of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made, works as intended. Feb. 27 2013
By S. Flask - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I purchased this adapter so I could mount an m42 screw mount lens to my micro 4/3 camera. One thing was critical: The adapter needed to have a flange that would depress the aperture pin, or else I would not be able to manually change the aperture with the lens mounted to the camera. This adapter worked flawlessly. The lens mounted properly so all the information was visible from above, the connection between the lens and the mount - and the mount and the body - was perfectly snug but not overly so. The flange depressed the aperture pin without issue. The adapter is made of metal and feels well constructed. Recommended.
