but in ebay it is very expensive.

Buy it now is over $40 without shipping.

Hi Ohmo,
Either one will do the job for you, and both have the key which helps in fitting and removing. ... Jack.

Has anyone actually bought and used either of these two adapters successfully?

They sure look right, but the proof of the pudding is in the using, not the lookin.

Yes, I have the Roxsen adapter, and it focuses to infinity.

Be aware that his stuff comes from Hong Kong. My adapter was underway for almost 3 weeks, and he is kinda slow in answering questions.

The price is right though...
