M42 lens to Sony E-Mount camera body adapter allows the attachment of old M42 (commonly called "Pentax screw thread") mount lenses onto Sony E-Mount bodies such as the NEX and ILCE series.
This Sony NEX body to M42 Lens Adaptor allows a photographer to mount old / vintage M42 lenses to a Sony NEX camera body by simply fitting the adaptor into the camera body.
The adapters are high quality straight through adapter, without lenses so there is no degrade in image quality. This adapter maintains infinity focus and is specifically a manual adaptor only with no electrical connections.
Please Note: Although the lens will fit physically, other functions like autofocus which are dependent on communication between the camera body and the camera lens will no longer function using the lens adapters. You will need to manually focus and to set exposures manually or meter in aperture priority mode.
For most Sony NEX and ILCE cameras you will need to select and set "release without lens" to ENABLE / ON in the cameras menu to enable the camera to fire without recognising a lens. The Sony cameras are capable of shooting in A or M modes and using manual focusing. To assist manual focusing some models also feature Focus Peaking, which can be switched on in the cameras menu if the camera supports this feature.
