M42-Nikon Adapter (with Infinity!)

M42 to Nikon Adapter (With Infinity Glass)
S/N - N/A
Selling for P500
(I'm giving you P400 if willing to pickup at our home.)
This adapter allows you to use lenses with M42 mount on your Nikon DSLR. It has a special coated optical glass that allows focusing to infinity and minimizes flare and internal reflection.
Most adapters out there do not have an optical glass. As a result, the farthest that your lens can focus is only up to 1 meter (using a 50mm lens), or up to 5 meters (using a 135mm lens).
Based on my samples and usage, the results seem to be good at f/2 -- no observed loss of contrast, softness or glow even when using flash, but the image does look warmer. However, I do not recommend using anything wider than f/2 with this adapter.
Please check if your lens has a protruding rear element. What happens is that the rear element will hit the adapter, so you cannot fully turn the focus ring to infinity.
The Helios 44-2 cannot be used with this adapter because of its protruding rear element. However, later versions like the Helios 44M-6 can be used without problem.
I only have one available. As you can see on my photos, there are some scratches on the body which has been repainted. There are also some marks on the glass but I assure that images are not affected.
Please buy with confidence!
Samples included here were shot with Nikon D5200 + Helios 44M-6 58/2 + M42-Nikon Adapter. All photos are raw. The cat shots were all at f/2 using this adapter.
