M42 adapter - loose


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am new to the vintage lenses topic and just purchased first M42 adapter from well known K&F Concept - Pro version.
The issue is it seems to be a bit loose while mounted to the X-T10.

Is that normal or it should perfectly fit?
Three very tiny screws are on the adapter - what are they designed for?

I will appreciate any you opinions on that.

Kind Regards,

Hi , I have the same with some K&F adapters, they wiggle a bit. But then I also have a Fujifilm lens that wiggles the same amount so I tought (hope) it's a normal margin. It does feel better when they sit tight. The one adapter I have from the brand Urth does fit tight.

Regarding the screws, that is not to adjust in case you were wondering.

Are the screws there so you can rotate whatever you're mounting to put the right things (such as aperture or focus scale) on top? The M42 thread itself doesn't have a means to do that -- you screw the lens in and when it's tight, it's tight, no matter where it stops. Maybe you can fudge it a bit, but not a whole rotation's worth. Loosen the screws, orient your mounted lens the way it should be, tighten the screws.
