Just received my Fotodiox adapter for M42 mount.
It's a screwmount M42 for the 1960-1970s Pentax Asahi manual
lenses with great bokeh. 
I have 3 lenses and tried 2 of them.

The adapter I got has the infinity focus capability by having
a glass element on the back. It included a Nikon rear lens
Has anyone else used this?

I'm concerned that it will not stop down my Tamron 24mm f/2.5
Looks good through the viewfinder. Glad I can finally use it
on my Nikon 8008s and FM2n bodies. I've had it used for about
9 years and didn't want to have to get another used one for
the F-mount.

Has anyone else used this Fotodiox M42 screwmount adapter for
other M42 screwmount lenses? Any favorite lenses in the M42
format that you plan on using for their look instead of a
Nikkor (not because of the cost?)
