M42 adapters to Sony E-mount are commonly available. A popular one is https://fotodioxpro....oducts/m42-snye.

You're in luck. 

  

Two major drawbacks to cheap adapters are crappy

front flanges and crappy bayonet latches. The M42 

mount needs no latch, and the threaded front flange 

is almost impossible to screw up quality-wise.  

 

The other thing money might buy you quality-wise is 

a less reflective interior of the adapter. So don't buy 

blind on eBuy. Buy from a vendor that answers their 

phone and tell them you want an M42 adapter with 

an anti-reflection lining. You may wind up spending 

$30 instead of $15.

The adapters from K&F Concept are cheap and work very well. I have Minolta MD, Pentax K and M42 adapters from this manufacturer and all work perfectly on my A7rii and A7s. They also work well when shooting IR. I don't see any point in paying loads more for the Novoflex adapter.

Hello, first post here! :)

 

I am looking for such an adepter as well (M42 to NEX) for my a6000. I've seen the following two types.

 

http://www.ebay.com/...NUAAOSw9GhYbMty

http://www.ebay.com/...bMAAOSwaB5XsmJE

 

Is it possible that they both work correctly? I mean focusing at infinity etc? Has anyone tried the slim version? It does not advertise infinity focus.

 

The two above are just for reference regarding their dimensions. I understand and agree that buying blindly from ebay has its risks.

 

Are there any other brands that anyone can recommend besides K&F?

 

Thanks in advance!

Aliengrove, thanks for your reply!

 

The links I gave above were just for reference regarding the adapter dimensions. I looked up some K&F on ebay and saw there are various designs, and possibly qualities? For example:

 

http://www.ebay.com/...~EAAOSwoydWl2KY

http://www.ebay.com/...WwAAOSwal5YErD6

 

The body mount is different, so the idea I get is I don't want to have scraped shards of metal or paint near my sensor ;)

 

The four k&f adapters you tried looked more like the first or second design?

 

Thanks again!
