Vello LA-FX-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 FUJIFILM X-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 FUJIFILM X-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.

Worth it for the price

If anyone is looking for a basic M42 adaptor, this does the job pretty well. My Super Takumar lens fits quite nicely, doesn't wiggle or anything so definitely a 10/10. Probably end up getting one more as backup.

Great adapter for my needs.

I used this to adapt a 1952-1955 serial Carl Zeiss Jena 58/2 Biotar to my Xpro-2. That lens has no aperture stop-down pins or levers so it was a perfect fit for this adapter.� The only thing I needed to do was to loosen 3 screws with a metric Allen key (hexagonal) to rotate the thread for the lens center to be aligned because it was a little off to the side. Took all of 30 seconds. This adapter is well made, has a quality fit and finish. It fits on smoothly and snug on my camera, there is no wobble whatsoever. It will add roughly 1.5" to your lens' overall length. I would buy this again with no hesitation. I hope this helps anyone who is considering buying it. Oh and BH are lightning quick at preparing and shipping out orders, it's really amazing. I hope someone finds this review useful.

applied takumar 50mm/1.4 on this adapter.� could not turn the focusing ring.� while focusing, as the lens body moves inside the adapter, a metal ledge prevents the body to move.� thus, it prevented me to use a focus ring.� basically a defective adapter; potentially a defective design.� to use it, need to file the ledge with a metal filer.

I bought this to connect an old Zenit "Bokeh Monster" to my Fujifilm X-H1. Perfect fit straight out of the box. Great test shots. Now I need a bokeh subject.

Very nice adapter

Vello M42 Lens to Fujifilm X-Mount Camera Lens Adapter Feels solid and the fits are great without significant play. It is simply a connector, no electronic communication, so all lens functions are manual. I plan to use the adapter on my XT-2.
