    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This lens adapter is metal and very durable. It has correction lens that allows focusing to infinity. It fits very well on my nikon d5100, and i'm using it with my old Helios 44-2 lens which is great bokeh performer :) I also think that correction lens does...
    Cons:
    As mentioned in earlier posts, it's very hard to take it of the lens. Price could be a few dollars lower.

    Does the job!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Made of steel. Very simple to use. I'm using it with Nikon D5100, Nikon D90 and Hellios 44M and Hellios 44M-4. Focus to infinity is possible only with glass mounted to the bottom of adapter. But glass is ok, clear and does not affect photography.
    Cons:
    Price should be lower! Once mounted is really hard to remove. My advice is to apply only a drop of motor oil to the screw befo...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    the product is fine for the price, i used on nikon d5100 camera, manual mode. Before use, set proper White balance for best picture. For night picture use higher ISO (800) and 1/30 shouter speed.
    Cons:
    there is little more space in the security tab on the camera, which can cause a shift in focus. I will use a small layer of sup...
