FotodioX M42-SNYE-V2 Overview

Make use of select M42-mount lenses on your Sony Alpha E-mount camera with this Lens Mount Adapter from FotodioX. Precision-crafted out of hardened anodized aluminum, the adapter provides a secure and solid camera-to-lens connection. Additionally, it supports focusing to infinity.

Lens Compatibility

If the aperture pin of your M42-mount lens depresses all the way down, your lens is considered type 2 and this V2 lens mount adapter is compatible with it.

However, if your M42-mount lens has no aperture pin, tabs, or levers; or if it has an aperture pin that does not fully depress (small tabs stick out), it is considered a type-1 lens and is compatible with V1 adapters (available separately).

Infinity Focus Review Update

By bruce
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2021-05-04

Since posting my previous review about infinity focus with this adapter and my M42 lenses, I have experimented and found another Fotodiox adapter: 16-30mm helicoid which will allow infinity focus with my lenses. If anyone else is encountering this kind of issue, I hope that this helps as it took a lot of work (and returned lens adapters) to finally find this solution.

Excellent

Connects my vintage M42 lenses to my Sony AR7iii. I love being able to use vintage glass on a modern camera.

Purchased this adapter to use a lovely vintage Mamiya Sekor 55m lens on my Sony E-Mount full-frame camera. Couldn't be happier with the product, nor with B&H's service..!

Will Not Infinity Focus

By bruce
Rated 2 out of 5

Have found that I cannot focus to infinity with all three M42 lenses that I own (Westromat 50mm/1.9, Mayima-Sekor 28mm/2.8, and no-name 200mm/4.5) with this adapter and my Sony 7c. All lenses hit their hard stop just before reaching focus at far distances. Seems that barrel needs to be about 2-3 mm shorter to allow true focus. Would recommend a shorter adapter for this camera and/or these lenses.

Works well

This adapter seems well built and works well for my M42 lenses. Focusing seems to work at all distances. However one small usability issue, instead of the M42 lens being attached upright, it ends up being on an 45ish deg angle when fully screwed in. So to see anything like focus markings, I have to keep tilting the camera to the side rather then just looking from above.

is this adapter will work on a revuenon 55mm
Asked by: Fritz
As long as the version of the Revuenon lens has the M42 mount and you want to attach it to an E mount camera that lens should work with that adapter. Note lens as well as the adapter too is all manual. So no autofocus, f/stops are controlled from the lens not the camera. And you need to use the camera in manual.

Does anyone know how to remove this adapter from a Zenit Helios 44m-4? My lens is locked on and will not unscrew.
Asked by: Hunter
Original author here. Correct, it does not lock. I finally got it off. I just had to put in more force than I wanted to. It seems the paint on the adapter flange is a little sticky/tacky. So, it formed a tight grab to the lens. Once off, it goes on and off again smoothly. No issues.
