is anyone using one of the two adapters from B&H

or

They both look "flangeless". So long as there is no flange (meaning the face of the adapter sits flush with the normal mount) you should have no trouble focussing to infinity. I use an adapter from some fellas in Hong Kong, purchased via eBay. Learned about it from a post here on pentaxforums. Works fine, and has been off my camera for about one hour in the last three weeks. Man I love my M42s.

I am not so sure about flanglessness of adapters you listed

I use the Kalt without problems.It's a bit snug which is easily cured with sandpaper.

Human? as opposed to people that are multilingual. I believe they are called humans
I come from a small country. Its whole population would be a part of New York suburbs (4.5million). We do have our own language, but since noone else speaks it or wants to learn it - apart from some linguistic geeks who want to learn one of the most difficult languages there is, or from poor fellows who are forced to live here, we have to learn to speak...english.
Some speak german, some speak italian, some spanish. Some speak several languages. I have a friend who "collects" languages. He is approaching a two-digit number of languages he can converse in fast. But he is a linguist and extremely talented one. He learned enough french in 4 months to be able to speak with a french girl he was in love with. Talking about inspiration
