... this knock off adaptor seems to allow the lens to press tighter to the camera mount and i don't see backing off the lens as an issue. ...
the extra snugness of the off brand rings i got is the perfect solution to characteristic wobble of the Helios 44-2 lens. this ring holds it tight and none of the wobble as seen with a genuine Pentax ring. cool!
