Zeiss Flektogon with K&F M42 adapter - gap between lens and adapter

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Last week I purchased the Zeiss Flektogon 35mm 2.4. for my Sony A7rii

I also purchased the K&F M42 NEX adapter

The lens attaches ok, and I can take photographs.

However there is a gap between the lens and the adapter. This cant be right!

Has anyone seen this? This is the right adapter isnt it?

Please help!

The adapter is fine - its just designed that way with a raised contact. Other adapters do not have this, and I have ordered several to compare and contrast.

Surely, despite your misgivings, you have checked the photos that you have taken ?


Have you not taken any  , yet  due to the assumed   gap ?

Go out, take a series of photos, then view the card on your computer.

That will imediately tell you, if its all sealed correctly

or if light is somehow getting  in ?

Get back to us, with your findings.

Good Luck

    • Is it possible to assign a custom button to actually toggle the eye af On or Off, rather than having to hold it down all the time. An alternate solution would be to Toggle (without holding a button down) if possible, from Human to Animal which would turn eye af for humans off. There are other options where you can select a Toggle for example, Register AF Toggle on AF2 page 4/19 on the A9

    • ... just to say hello to all of you. I'm new to this forum and I hope to get new contact to other A7 addicts. Best wishes - Andreas
    • I was looking for an official number for the A7ii for shutter life expectancy but couldn't find anything on sonys page. On other bodies like A7Rii iii snd A6400 A6600 and so on they state how much the shutter has been tested for. If ypu google it you get unconfirmed 200k, but that isn't from sony themselves so Im suspicious about that.  Btw, how much worse is the af on the 7ii compared to the 7rii? 
    • Hi All I'm new to this forum and did a quick check as i'm sure this has been answered before but I couldn't find anything. I have an A6000 that I want to download the Time Lapse app to but in order to do this I need to connect it to a laptop. I've now tried two different laptops and two different genuine Sony cables but still nothing. I've been through the troubleshooting on the Sony website but none of that worked including trying the different USB Connection settings. Any ideas?
