Some years ago I bought a permanent/reversible Exakta-M42 adapter for my Topcor RE Auto 135/3.5. Works beautifully, looks like a factory item, same concept as Leitax. Now I need another one but can't find the guy I got it from. I believe he's in Hong Kong and fairly certain I found it on eBay. Unfortunately all my purchase histories don't go back far enough so I've lost any record.

Sorry, but I'm grabbing at straws here. But sound familiar to anyone?

Try looking up your purchase history on phone app. Mine goes back as far as 2015. Quite useful.

Thanks but not there. It was <2012. Sad

Haha found it!

Realized it’s a Topcor->M42. (Corrected my initial post.)

I got the last silver one but here’s a link to black version: http://eBay.to/2GQrjdW

What's the deal buying that adapter? Using RE lenses in M42 mount cameras?

Exactly. This M42 conversion allows infinity focus contrary to the simple ring version. Allows adaption to some DSLRs as well (Canon, Pentax, Sony A-mount).
