    I picked up a cheap focus reducer for the Nikon mount here:

    Everything worked fine, except it won't let me get infinity focus. I also own a Roxsen adapter for Micro Four Thirds and with that I can adjust the adapter by rotating the rear element. Unfortunately the Fuji adapter won't let me do any adjustments. I'm debating whether to exchange the unit for another adapter or just return it. I was considering buying a Mitakon/Zhongyi Lens Turbo, but it's more than I want to spend just to adapt a few old MF lenses.

    Does anyone have experience with this particular adapter, especially with adjusting it or is it an inherit design flaw in the adapter that I should just avoid?

    I'm a little bummed, because the Roxsen adapter I have for M43 works fine for the price I paid for it. :frown:
