Fotodiox adapter - anyone use one of these?
Anyone here ever use the Fotodiox adapter (xxx brand -> Nikon F)?
There appears to be a couple of manufacturers of adapters. Fotodiox seems to have one for $75, whilst there are others selling for half the price. Of course my concern is the machining of the mount on the Nikon-side to ensure it doesn't do any damage.
I understand all of the limitations of using said adapters and am looking for anyone who has first hand experience on using them, or know someone that could provide feedback.

IIRC my Pentax 645->Nikon mount adapter is a Fotodiox. I've only used it with a couple of lenses (120mm macro, 135mm LS) but I have had no issues nor complaints.

Thanks. I have some Mamiya glass that I wouldn't mind trying on my D200. And it looks like Amazon has one of these for $39 - which is much lower than buying direct from Fotodiox...so might give it a try and report back...
