    Just a quickie I currently have a Hexanon to m43 adaptor I bought to use with my 135mm but it seems quite loose sometimes, I don't have this issue with my Canon FD adaptor and I wondered if there is a better quality Hexanon adaptor available.

    There probably are better and more expensive adaptors but someone also wrote about how to "fix" cheap loose ones. Seems it was alluded to in the how to use adapted lenses FAQ. I am fighting my ad right now so not so easy for me to check and link to it but have a look over there. I mean to get around to trying that on one of my loose m42 adapters

    where is it loose?

    at the adapter-lens portion : there is a slit-crimp mechanism that will keep the lens tight on adapter. You take a small screw-driver and pinge in. that will tighten the lens. be careful not to overdo it. it will scrape the lens mount

    adapter-camera : sometimes i need to use a circular plastic sheet to keep the fit tight. this is mostly with ebay adapters.
