    Buyers of expensive things MUST praise their junk and make all other bad.

    Sorry, you're a Hartblei employee and it isn't allowed for you saying something other ...

    Yes, yes it's hard to see good and cheap Chinese adapters ... my 15 adapters are all metal, no one disintegrates into parts ... excellent quality!

    Add 2 of mine for 1/3 of the cost (delivered!) of similar European brand adapters.

    Obvious if something is too cheap to be possible it usually is, but if you don't go overboard and check some references before ordering there is no real need to spend more in my opinion.

    I understand the super craftmanship and the joy it gives to the user (I still own Leicas and Leica Lenses) but not all other stuff is bad (far from) and the incremental cost is usually only emotionally justifyable but not on objective price/value relationship

    I just tested the Fotodiox OM adapter on a NEX-5 at Wolf Camera. The sales guy was just as fascinated as I was.

    This is great news! John - I'm glad to hear that you are going to offer these.

    I've always been very impressed and satisfied with your adapters.
