      Works as advertised

      Comments about Dot Line Lens Mount Adapter for M42 to Nikon F/AI:

      Seemed a fair price for what it is. I was hoping the mount would be metal given the photo, but what arrived was black plastic (albeit a durable feeling plastic). Installs easily and holds a metal lens quite securely.

          Used this mount to attach older lenses to a more recent Nikon (DS3200) and it works perfectly.

            Had a few Asai Pentax from my Viet Nam days that I wanted to use. Customer service provided me with the right information. Am using my f1.4 pentax lenses with my Nikon D5000 with happy results. Thanks B&H.

              Comments about Dot Line Lens Mount Adapter for M42 to Nikon F/AI:

              I bought this adapter to use an old Pentax screw-mount bellows and Nikkor enlarger lens on my Nikon D3100. It does the job, but without autofocus or metering. Also without spending hundreds on auto extension tubes or bellows. It appears to be well made. Anyone who buys it should understand that they will be able to use only manual mode, manual focus, and trial-and error exposure. My camera would not let me use Live View with this setup.

                  Poor construction.
                  Can't use the lenses to their full potential.
                  Dificult to attach.

                  Comments about Dot Line Lens Mount Adapter for M42 to Nikon F/AI:

                  Thanks to this adapter, I am able to use my old "screw on" mounts from my old Pentex camera.
                  It works great but you must use the manual mode on all your lens. The one hitch I had with this adapter is that it can be difficult to remove once on the camera. I was able to get infinity focus and was able to use my fish eye lens.
