I guess the million dollar question is, why bother?

Like the M42 to Nikon converters, this one has a supplemental rear element to allow for infinity focus. In general, those have produced poor results.

its only a question of whether anyone has tested it to see if the image quality is good or bad.

I know someone who has mikon manual focus lenses, and is thinking about a DSLR, but does not like the size of the nikon that can use his MF lenses.

He is looking at olympus because there are machined mounts available to mount virtually anything to the 4/3 mount, which is closer to the focal plane than any other camera, hence the lenses can afford the thickness of the adaptor and focus to infinity without extra elements.

He also likes the size of the smaller pentax bodies hence the question
