DESCRIPTION

Our extendable lens mount adapter lets you adjust the effective focal length of your lens for sharp macro photography. Experiment with new lens combinations and pair any M42 mount lens with your Sony E mount camera.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a lens mount adapter?

A lens adapter allows you to attach a different brand of lens to your camera body, letting you use an otherwise incompatible lens with your camera.

How do I find the right lens adapter for my lens and camera?

Find your lens mount and your camera mount.

The easiest way to find and confirm your lens mount is to know the mount of the camera it was used on originally. A quick internet search of the camera model followed by lens mount is a sure way to confirm what lens mount you need. For example if you have an old Nikon lens and you know it was used on a Nikon FM2, you can easily find that the lens has a Nikon F-mount. This is particularly useful for lenses that are made for different mounts i.e Sigma and Tamron bring out the same lens with different mounts including EF, F, E so knowing the camera the lens was used on is a good shortcut.

If you have an old second hand lens and you are unsure of the camera it was made for, take all the known details of the lens and search the web.

Why buy a lens mount adapter?

To utilise quality old lenses with your new camera, or match a different make of lens to your camera.

There are countless creative experiments to be explored by mixing different brands of lenses with your camera body. Lens adapters can also help your existing collection of lenses go further with any new cameras you collect. So you can invest in a new camera and make the most of your favourite lenses.

How do you use a lens mount adapter?

Find a detailed how to for each filter at the base of its product page.

In summary, attach your lens to the adapter, and then your adapter to your camera body. Put all settings on your lens and camera into manual mode, and select ‘shoot without lens’ in your camera settings.

When should I use a lens mount adapter?

Whenever you want to use a different make of lens with your camera body.

Because you need to use your camera in full manual mode, you may need to familiarise yourself with this before shooting. You’ll soon work out which lenses you enjoy using with your camera. Analogue lenses can provide professional quality glass at a fraction of the cost of modern lenses so lens adapters can help you shoot with better lenses for less.

Can I change my aperture when using this lens mount adapter?

Only if your lens has a manual aperture control ring.

If you use a lens with electronic aperture and no manual control ring, because this lens mount adapter is fully manual, your aperture would remain at its maximum aperture (lowest f-stop).

Great adapter

This is a very high quality adapter with a snug fit and no play on the mount. It is also extendable, so no need for extra extension rings. Recommended for macro with vintage lenses!

adapter M42 to E-mount with macro

It's a great tool , solid and does what it has to do (adapter from M42 to Sony E-mount). But the extra of the macro possibility makes it so versatile . Certainly with the CZJ Biotar 58mm T2 that has an MOD of 0.5m brings it to 0.25m. Super

Sleek & versatile

Perfect fit, high quality, and does the job nicely. So glad I went with this product over the cheap versions on eBay because this one is designed perfectly to suit the body. Also glad I paid a bit extra for the extendable feature, just to add that bit more versatility. Very happy!

More than a one trick focussing pony

This adapter is like having a two-level focus range to manipulate the depth of field.

Not only does it shorten the focal length possible but it allows the lens to enable a greater depth of field and tame the bokeh which allows for more flexibility on closer shots not just shorter than the standard distance the lens would allow.

So, by using the extension feature on the adapter — which by the way is as smooth as butter to adjust and ergonomically simple — the focus ring on the lens can be adjusted to a position that increases the depth of focus available at a particular distance which would otherwise be impractically shallow for a specific subject matter, such as an insect or small flower.

This can then allow for a much more congruent and pleasing level of focus content.

The two methods of focusing, one on the Urth M42 Extendable adapter and the other using the focus ring on the lens itself, can be balanced to create a more desirable or manageable DoF for artistic pleasure. Brilliant!

So, not only does it allow for focus at closer distances it also allows for greater flexibility over the amount of focus available.
