I found this adapter for Nikon to Minolta/Sony, has anyone tried this? How much does an extra element effect the end result?

I have 4 or 5 of this adapters. They work great. I can recommend them.

I use Sony Alpha bodies (A100, A700 and A350) with various mf lenses. It works fine, except that the A350 can only be used in manual mode (not A=aperture priority) unless you have a chipped adapter.
Apart from m42 and Adaptall-2 I also use some Pentacon lenses, sometimes with a tilt adapter.

I just want to add that the a300 (and I assume the a350) is unable to fit the helios-40-2 on it. The helios is just too fat at the base and hits the protruding sony logo. Works fine on the a100 though...

The A200, A300 and A350 have the same body, the only difference being the live view in A300 & A350, and the better sensor in the A350. So the Helios wouldn't fit any of them.

Hi, im new, to the forum and photography in general really.
I have a Sony A200, and my friend has just given me a few old Carl Zeiss and Paragon lenses. Would they work using that adapter?

Sorry if i'm abit vague, I am quite good with a camera, just not with the theory. Very Happy
Thanks

Welcome!

As you could read before M42 screw mount lenses will work with available adapter.

Do you know what mount your Carl Zeiss & Paragon lenses are? If they are M42, you are in luck.

I have A200 + M42 adapter with the AF confirmation but i don't use the AF confirmation because it takes too long to get the confirmation. Besides the chip sometimes disconnects from the body and some motor inside the body is starting to run (usually for some 4-5 seconds) and freezes the camera since the lens is found (chip is again connected with the body). Besides the thread of the adapter is so strange... f.e. when i connect to the body my Tair 3S the focusing ring is (looking on the body from the screen/back side) on the left hand and all marks (aperture, focal length etc.) are on the right hand. The lens is screwed in the adapter/body almost quarter of the turn too far. BTW: the adapter costed ~35-40 EUR.

Hello, you will need an AF (focus confirm) chipped M42 adapter for the a200. I can recommend jinfinance on ebay. Another seller I bought from is big_is but the adapter did not reach infinity.

I've made a mistake. There's no almost quarter of turn reserve but inversely - the rifling is ending almost quarter of turn too early - is it normal or should i complain the adapter?

You'd be lucky to find an adapter that has the screw aligned properly. Even many of the M42 cameras weren't all that good either, although they were usually acceptably close.
In other words, it's normal and it's one of the reasons why bayonet fittings took over, apart from quickness.
