            Comments about Dot Line Lens Mount Adapter for M42 to Canon FL/FD:

            I shoot film with a Canon Ft-b. I have a Pentax 300mm telephoto and needed a new adapter. The old one snapped in my hand. This one is definitely sturdier. I found it necessary to attach the adapter to the camera first in order to tighten it down sufficiently. Then I screw on the lens. Otherwise perfect.

            Doesn't fit

                  Comments about Dot Line Lens Mount Adapter for M42 to Canon FL/FD:

                  This adapter will not "lock on" by turning the lock ring. The fit is way too tight and all it will do is barely tighten. In having read different reviews on M42 adapters for the FD mount it seemed that they are all deficient in this respect. I did test the infinity focus and that was ok, so if your really decided on getting a M42 adapter, this one will work but be aware of the problem. Could the lens come off? To tell the truth I doubt mine will since I put a pretty good twist on it, but when taking it off it can be really hard depending on how strong you are. I rate it one star for not working correctly and passing quality control somehow.

                      it fits, it works, it screws easily and unscrews the same way
                      all tight all right size and seems very robust. I recommend because the old lenses are good and this inexpensive fix can put them back to use.
