I apologize for 6 month bump but I was disappointed by the Bower adapter from BH. The screw for the locking spring extended significantly into the lens threads and created a metallic powder when I screwed on the first lens. Luckily I attached it to an old ME Super first and didn't potentially get this on the sensor.

The adapter works perfect now that the screw and locking spring have been removed. But I really wonder what kind of QC they have if they drill a hole into the valley of a thread and put a screw in that is roughly even with the crest. Not to mention the other complaints (here and in the reviews at BH) where the adapter got stuck on the body (poor QC for the outer diameter?).

The orientation is about 60 deg off to the right but that isn't a big deal to me.
