I've read TOO much about M42 adapters for the 5D that have to be modified before they fit properly. That isn't for me. I can do it...I just don't want to. IMO, it's ridiculous to buy a part and then have to "remake" it before it functions as it should. I think I've read everything on this forum regarding the adapters; and I know there are some that work well right out of the box, but I'm still not clear exactly where those adapters can be purchased. Even if I have to pay a little more, I usually turn to B&H when I want to be sure I'm getting a quality item; however, in this case, the adapter they are selling looks as if it has the ridge that needs to be sanded before the adapter works right. Can someone please tell me where I can buy an adapter that doesn't have to be "re" adapted?
