The chrome Pro Adapter for M42 Lens to Canon EOS Camera with Focus Confirmation Chip, V.2 with Flange from FotodioX attaches M42 screw-mount lenses to select Canon EOS cameras. Automatic aperture and autofocus are not supported via this adapter and "stop-down" metering in manual or aperture-priority modes must be utilized, however the focus confirm chip will inform the user when a subject is in focus. The adapter provides a flange to control the iris on select M42 lenses. This version of this adapter is considered the "pro" model because its chromed brass construction is durable and made to withstand repeated use.

Compatibility
The adapter provides at least limited compatibility with all Canon EOS cameras excluding the EOS 5D Mark III for which the confirmation chip is not supported.

    Pro Adapter for M42 Lens to Canon EOS Camera with Focus Confirmation Chip, V.2 with Flange (Chrome) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works beautifully! The adapter fits snugly to my camera and holds the M42 lens at the correct angle. The AF confirmation chip works perfectly as well. Without a good manual focusing screen on a modern camera, this is very helpful! The only concern I have is that the AF confirm chip is just glued into place, and could come off. It seems decently attached, though, and I haven't had any problems yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Focus Confirmation An excellent product! I'm using it to adapt and old Helios 44-2 lens to canon DSLR. I cannot stress enough how awesome it is to have Focus Confirmation!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One thing to note is that there is a super small amount of play between the adapter and the lens. Nothing that will affect use at all. It's incredibly small. But something to note.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, and fits perfectly It's a nice solid chunk of metal, machined well, and the chip contacts are aligned correctly. The only potential issue I see is that the edge is thin enough to make it difficult to remove from the camera if a lens isn't tightly attached. But then it might also be hard to remove from the lens... I don't think this is a criticism of the adapter, though. There's only so much space to design around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works perfectly Lovely piece of equipment! Used it to get a Takamur 55mm f1.8 on my Canon T4i.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Perfect! Once I found out that I can activate my focus on the canon that was it- I bought it and never regret it. On the way is another one. In total I have 3 adapters that worked perfect. I will there was a way to reprogram how the camera sees the chip and not just the EXIF data.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected This is one of those things you shouldn't have to think about, you should be able to set it and forget it. Well, you can set this and forget it. It does exactly what it says. It mounts an M42 lens on an EF body and communicates the maximum aperture and focal length to the body. Setting the aperture and focal length is a bizarre process, but it takes five minutes and you never have to futz with it again. Your camera will select shutter speeds appropriate for the focal length (faster speeds for longer lengths). Note: The camera thinks the lens will stop down when you press the shutter. If you adjust the aperture setting in camera, it'll lengthen the exposure to compensate, because it thinks the lens will stop down during the exposure. For example, if I stop down my f/2.8 lens to f/4, and set my camera to f/4, it will overexpose by one stop. Basically, just always tell the camera your lens is wide-open and the metering will work correctly. If you really want the EXIF data to convey the aperture correctly, shoot in manual.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro adapter for M42 lens and canon EOS This was a fun purchase as it allowed me to use an old good quality lens on a new system. The controls need to be manually adjusted (ISO, f stop, speed) but this can be quickly learned to get some excellent macro shots, particularly of insects.
