Heya,

EOS-M with Fotodiox EF adapter -> EF -> M42 adapter -> Helios 44-2:

Very best,

Thanks for posting this, I was wondering how the M would work with the M42 adapter and the EF to EOS-M adapter.

I was thinking of getting the Canon one, but it seems the Fotodiox version works just as well.

Great pics, please keep them coming.

Heya,

The white box Canon one is $60. And the Fotodiox Pro adapter is $60. Both on Amazon right now. So it goes either way. I'm happy with the Fotodiox Pro, I got it for closer to $50 when I bought it.

I did notice one thing (at least with my adapter) that I have several M42 -> EF adapters. The ones with the shelf plate (that normally would keep the automatic aperture pin pressed in on older lenses) had contact error with the adapter. The M42 -> EF adapter that I use without that shelf plate, that lets the pin rest in the out position, works perfectly without error. This is the EF-M -> EF adapter's problem because it made no difference which M42 adapter I used on my 5D, Xsi, 650D, etc. But the EF-M adapter is quite picky with that thing, so I'm thinking it's due to some metal contact where it wasn't supposed to touch. Keep that in mind if you're into vintage glass and the EOS-M.

To be more clear,this one works with the EF-M adapter just fine (external link). And this one causes contact problems resulting in errors that prevent usage. (external link) The only difference is that shelf that holds the old pin in. So I use my chrome one on my 5D. I use the black one on my EOS-M with EF-M adapter.

Here's a few more from that day with the EOS-M and adapter Helios 44-2. The 5x magnification on the LCD really helps land sharp focused shots with the crushingly thin depth of field that old F2 lens provides.

Isolation is great, even on APS-C, with the old 44-2. Maybe 2 centimeters of DOF here.

I like the EOS-M with vintage glass because I often have to use Live View anyways with them to get good focus, except when I use my 5D with precision matte focus screen then I can do it with the view finder no problem. But with my APS-C's, the view finders are off no matter what for me, but Live View makes it a cinch to nail focus. The `M is small, so it's less of a hassle to have with a vintage piece of glass (plus it doesn't dwarf the vintage glass, the way my gripped SLR's dwarf my old lenses).

Here's some size comparison. My 5D classic is my "manual focus" lens camera. That's all I typically use with it is manual lenses, like the Samyang 85 F1.4, sometimes the Helios 44-2, Super Takumar 50 F1.4, etc. But the EOS-M does it too, with Live View, and is much smaller, lighter, and makes the smaller manual vintage primes a little more "portable" as it's not like I'm breaking out a 4lb brick to take a photo randomly as I walk around. And it's quiet, since there's no mirror. I like that a lot.

Adapted 44-2 (Fotodiox EF-M -> EF adapter; Fotodiox V1 EF -> M42 adapter; all black). The adapter is nearly as big as the lens!

(Note, that tripod foot comes off on the EF-M adapter, making it more simple, but I leave it on as I often adapt things that are heavier than the EOS-M, and don't want to strain the connection).

Very best,

Many thanks for your reply, it was very helpful. I have a number of M42 lenses including Helios and Zeiss, which I use on my 7D using both the flanged and non flanged M42 adapters. I also bought an FD to EOS-M adapter, that also works very well.

I want to get an adapter with a tripod foot to help support some of my EF S lenses, for example the 15-85, which is quite a heavy lens. I also want to use my Sigma 150-500 on the M, but that does have a tripod foot, which will support both the camera and lens.

I live in the UK and have found quite a big difference in cost between a genuine Canon adapter and the Fotodiox Pro adapter, so will probably go with the Fotodiox, or similar.

Cheers.

I haven't really shot much wildlife before, so it was hard to pick out my favorites. Definitely appreciate any feedback!

I think the first 2 are great! While the 3rd shows more detail of the animal, I feel the composition could be better my moving the beast off center. :D

i wonder what the size comparison of the M42 to EF-M mounts are like with the EF-EFm adapter...they don't look like they're that much smaller

Looking at the flange distances on Wikipedia (external link), the EF-M is 18mm, EF is 44mm and M42 is 45.46mm, so an EF-M to M42 adapter will have to be slightly longer than an EF-M to EF adapter for it to work.


EOS M, EOS M3, EF-M 11-22mm, EF-M 22mm, EF-M 18-55mm, EF-S 55-250, C-mount 50mm F1.8, EVF for M3

yeah it would just be a tiny bit longer, here's a shot of my EF-EFM adapter and the M42-EF adapter installed on it.

it was actually a lot cheaper using a EF to EFM adapter then EF adapters for the lenses(M42,Pentax,Niko​n,etc) by a whole lot I mean $60-100 cheaper.

Some of the dedicated EF-M adapters are really expensive for some reason, the pentax K one is like 6-8 times more than the regular PK to EF adapter.
