Vello LA-NEX-M42 Overview

Make the most of your existing collection of M42-mount glass with this Vello Lens Adapter that will allow you to mount these lenses to a Sony E-mount camera. Precise construction makes it easy to attach these adapted lenses to your camera and keeps it secure during use. Infinity focus is guaranteed, ensuring that you get proper functionality our of all your optics. Additionally, the adapter is made from a durable zinc alloy and features a matte black finish on the inside to reduce the potential for glare and reflections that can negatively impact image quality.

Although the lens will fit physically, autofocus, automatic diaphragm (AE metering), and other functions dependent on communication between camera body and lens will be disrupted by the lens adapter. You will need to focus manually, and to set exposures manually or meter in aperture priority (stop-down) mode. Focusing to infinity is retained.

This adapter enables the use of M42 lenses on Sony E-mount cameras, meaning you can now use your existing stable of lenses on your current camera. It is also very secure, holding the lens in place without any wobble sometimes associated with the adapting process.
Thanks to precise manufacturing, this adapter is guaranteed to provide infinity focus by placing the lens at the correct distance from the sensor. This allows you to make the most of your lenses and doesn't limit you from shooting distant subjects.
Made from a durable zinc alloy, this adapter will withstand many uses and won't wear or break in the way soft brass or cheap plastic would. Also, an internal matte black finish reduces reflections and glare, ensuring your images look sharp and contrasty.

Works well with Helios 44-2

Using a Helios 44-2 on my Sony A7C. Works well. It's a bit long but you don't have to worry about any elements hitting your sensor.

To infinity and beyond.

This solid Adapter works to infinity on a range of exotic lenses. The build will last forever. If you are a fan of vintage glass, this is a great choice.

I have had to get a couple M42 adapters to get perfect infinity focus. This works on a bunch of exotic lenses. It is built well too.

Great!

These are built nicely, bought them for my Takumars. All fit except the 50mm f1.4 and the 35mm f2 (because of the protruding rear element on those two lenses). The Fotasy adapter worked perfectly for those, and this Vello worked for everything else, including a CZ Flektogon 20mm.

Simply fine

A well-made simple adapter for M42 to Sony. Snug, solid fit front and back, with everything functioning as you'd expect.

Works well

Used with a Helios 44-2 without issue. It does stick out quite a bit, but then again you don't have to worry about components going into your sensor.
