|Ok, so I finally receive my m42 > eos adapter from "big is" on ebay. The mount is very nice, great quality, but there is some clearance issues that I don't understand.
The aperture "peg" on the back of the mount, by the back element, hits the mount. So, when screwed in all the way, the aperture ring doesn't spin freely.
did I just get a bad sample, or am I doing something wrong? I have extension tubes that fit perfectly, so don't think it's a lens issue.
hopefully this makes sense.
here is a pic of the problem aperture "peg"
