    Many recommend the shop at Chinatown Point. I've never been there myself. Do a search on the forum.

    I've found the ebay ones to be ok. (these are the ones without the additional flange, so the lenses can focus to infinity.

    The jinfinance one on ebay is ok. I have 3. The only odd thing is that I ordered 1 first and then 2 much later on (around 1 yr), and only the 1st order adapter is able to mount on direct to the camera when attached to the lens. The other 2 are need to be mounted onto the camera 1st, followed by screwing on the lens. There are some finishing differences between these 2 batches, so i think the tooling probably changed in between my purchases.

    This is not the only seller on ebay, so you can choose the seller yourself.

    Another note. This one is the version that does not focus to infinity

    I bought a few pcs original Pentax M42 adapter in Japan when I was there recently.
    Will post in B&S if decided not to keep some of them.
