The M42 Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Pro Lens Mount Adapter from Fotodiox allows a M42-mount lens to be used with a full-frame or APS-C format Sony E-mount camera. It is designed to support infinity focusing, and is constructed with brass to provide a durable, yet lightweight camera-to-lens connection.

This adapter does not support electronic communication between an attached camera and lens. After being placed on the front of the adapter, focus and aperture controls on the lens would continue to be used.

    FotodioX M42-SNYE-PRO-V2 reviews

    M42 Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Pro Lens Mount Adapter is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected This adapter allows me to fully utilize the lens from an old pentax honeywell spotmatic with my Sony A6000. Lens screws onto the adapter easily, and is secure once fully attached; the threading is smooth and matches the lens well. The metal construction allows me to have faith that this adapter will stand up to regular use. Lens performs as intended while attached. Focuses to infinity, and no noticeable vignetting at the corners of the image. I cannot speak to vignetting on a full frame e-mount camera. I was slightly disappointed that no rear lens cap came with the adapter. One was easily purchased separately, so this is hardly a detraction.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from NG with SMC Takumar 50mm f1.4 I should have relied on previous reviews. I even asked the B&H rep about the exact issue previously written. This will NOT work with the Super Multi Coated Takumar 50mm f1.4 lens. The exact problem: For the lens to work a pin in the rear must be depressed in order for the lens to close the aperture in Auto mode on lens. The adapter has a ridge inside which does depress this pin when screwed on the lens. Even if lens is set to manual the pin gets depressed. Unfortunately the ridge ALSO hits the indicator fin that is for the aperture. This restricts the aperture ring on the lens. Result: If the lens is mounted tight / firm the aperture ring will not turn. If lens is mounted loose then turning the focus ring or aperture ring will turn entire lens which may unthread and fall off. There is no way to hold lens from doing this or find a happy medium that woks. I'm going to investigate one of the other types ie Metabones etc. I had asked the rep about this exact issue and was assured it would work!!! I had wanted this to work because I wanted to maintain IQ not have other elements causing changes. Back to the drawing board!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great, High Quality Build Works as expected. High quality metal construction that fits each mount well. I haven't noticed any shifting or looseness on either end. The interior of the adapter has a anti-reflective coating with ridges that prevent flaring and glare which works perfectly in direct sunlight. The adapter has a very thin diameter, however, no vignetting occurs in my tests. Furthermore, the adaptor is fully static, so unless stripping occurs, which is unlikely due to the somewhat large threading of the M-42 mount and the strength of the construction, the adaptor should last for a lifetime.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this! I didn't read the reviews. I screwed on my Takumar 50mm lens. It seemed to screw in easily but it shed metal shavings all over the sensor if my new A7ii while I'm on vacation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great adapter The Pro Lens Mount Adapter for M42-Mount Lens to Sony E-Mount is a very good adapter and performs as it should. I am very happy to have this adapter for a Mamiya lens that is from 1966 but wish I had the FotodioX Adapter for Mamiya ZE Lens to Sony NEX Mount Camera B&H # FOPNEXAMZ MFR # M(ZE)-NEX-P because it has a built in variable ND filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No frills work horse.. This is a solid, one piece machined ring of metal that will hold your M42 lens securely to your E-Mount Camera. It's has a no frills design, no electronics, no glass, but then there's nothing to become damaged. The finish is nice and smooth, the lettering finely painted on. It does what it needs to do well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works with Most of My M42 Lenses This adapter works with most of my M42 lenses when mounting them to an a7R II & a7R III. I have several Pentax Super Takumar lenses -- 28/3.5, 35/2, 35/3.5, 50/1.4, 85/1.8, 85/1.9, 100/2.8, 135/3.5, and 200/4. I also have a Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Primoplan 58/1.9. This adapter lets me �use all my M42 lenses except the 85/1.8, which doesn't properly attach to this adapter, and I've tried two different adapters. While it does successfully attach to the 200 f/4 lens, the aperture ring is very tight and difficult to change, although I suppose I could give it one more test to double check and make sure everything was properly attached and aligned. Regardless, I'll probably try the Vello M42 to Sony E adapter before making a final choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Purchase Purchased this adapter to attach a Pentax SMC 400mm telephoto lens to my E-Mount Sony A6000. Excellent product, quality product, excellent fit, priced right, would buy again.
