General Brand ABMAXS overview

  • 1Description

This adapter allows a "universal screw mount" type lens (Pentax M42) to be mounted on a Minolta Maxxum body. Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm (AE metering), or any other functions are not retained using this adapter. In this case you will need to meter in "stop-down mode" since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body.

General Brand ABMAXS reviews

Maxxum Body to Universal Lens Adapter is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from M42 adapter quality varies among makers This inexpensive chromed brass adapter aims to serve a useful purpose, namely to mount any M42 lenses on SONY Alpha DSLR cameras (or Minolta SLRs). Unfortunately my unit was machined imprecisely - it was clear that its manufacturer paid lip service to the exact geometry of the Alpha mount. It will allow you to mount an M42 lens on a SONY Alpha DSLR or a Minolta SLR camera, but the ridge running on the side of the adapter prevents it from seating fully and thus affects exact focus on infinity. If you are industrious enough to shave off that ridge with a metal file, sandpaper, or mechanical means, your M42 lenses would focus just fine.
