I have around ten vintage lenses for my Pentax K-3 using an M42 adapter. Purchased a Canon T100 from a friend at a really low price & this adapter work great on it. Now I can use my favorite lenses.

I'm of two minds

The adapter does exactly what it is supposed to. Therefore, I'm compelled to say that I like it. But the whole idea of adapting vintage manual focus lenses to Canon EOS cameras leaves much to be desired. Only the VF works; the screen is black. Therefore, one can't use focus magnification, making a manual focus lens hard to use. If you want to use vintage lenses, I recommend a mirrorless camera. Unfortunately, I had to buy the adapter to learn all that.

I like vintage glass but need focus confirmation so this is the solution.

Works without flaw as advertised

Handles my old M42 lenses as if they were made to fit my old Canon Elan 7 camera. What a pleasant surprise!

Fits well. Put it on the lens first, then mount to camera. I have a Canon 5D Mark II.

Works great, tolerances seem good

What does type 1 and type 2 mean in the other versions of this adapter? are there different mounts of M42?
Asked by: Marcelo
The Type 1 adapts an M42-mount lens without an aperture pin, or with a non-fully depressible aperture pin and tabs along its screw-mount. The Type 2 adapts an M42-mount lens with a fully depressible aperture pin.

Does this get semi-permanently attached to the lense or can you easily switch between lenses?
Asked by: Samantha
Very easy to switch. It's just an adapter, so you can unscrew the lens like a normal Pentax mount.

Will this adapter work with Metabones ultra 0.71 speed booster EF to BMPCC 4k (BH #MESPEFM43BT8)?
Asked by: Saleh
This adapter would allow for the use of M42 screw mount lenses to fit on a Canon EOS camera with an EF mount. If you're looking to use the Canon EF lenses on a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K with a Micro 4/3 mount, then the Metabones T Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x Adapter for Canon EF Lens to BMPCC 4K Camera, B&H # MESPEFM43BT8 would be used on its own with no other adapters.
