Recommend me an AF Confirm EOS to M42 adapter

Hello there,

Like the title say, I'm looking for a good AF confirm adapter for EOS. I will use this adapter with a Jupiter 21M but also a Carl Zeiss 50mm Tessar and an Helios 44-2.

Thank you for your time : )

I believe I have the Fotodiox model. The AF confirms works well enough, but I rely on LiveView and my own eyes more frequently. These adapters are cheap enough to assign one to each lens.

I use a 350D, unfortunately I don't have the liveview so I have to rely solely on my eyes. I can produce focused picture without the bee sound but a little help would be appreciated if I can produce more keeper.

PS Mods: It seems like I posted in the wrong section, sorry about that. I'll be more carefull next time : /
