    I recently purchased a Fotodiox M42 adapter to use some recently acquired Pentax lenses. They work perfectly fine however the aperture ring is on the righthand side instead of the top. Is this normal?

    If you undo the three screws a little on the outside of the adapter you will be able to spin the lens strait. Once there just tighten the screws back down.
