TEN BUCKS EACH?!?!? That's way too much! I think my last batch of ten (a few months ago) cost me US$40 shipped. But maybe you got the high-quality clones.

Seriously: I have a couple dozen now. The first was a traumatic learning experience. The rest have been trouble-free, EXCEPT for one that I mistreated a bit. Its reward: being glued to a Petri lens, from which I removed the old bayonet base and used contact cement to attach the adapter. Yes, even the bad ones can be redeemed.

Meanwhile, how about stopping the flame war? Attack the information, not the informer.

I can give one simple reason I bought the Pentax adapter. Well over a thousand dollars worth of Takumar lenses and one bad experience with a generic adapter. To me, the additional $30 was worth it just for the peace of mind. End of story.


P.S. I had to laugh quite some time back when Pentax still had the adapters in stock for about $40. Someone was selling a genuine Pentax adapter on e-bay and the bidding got up around $50. smh

Still looking (yes, I've been looking for the genuine Pentax -- precautionary principle)
