Subject: [Leica] Kindai - EOS adapters for various lenses

Just got a parcel from Novoflex,
if anyone is thinking of buying Kindai EOS adapters, they are wonderful 
quality, but quite expensive (145 euros)  bits of precision engineering, 
I just got the Exakta, the Rollei and their M42 that depresses the 
aperture pin.
A note on the Exakta adapter, later Topcon lenses with Exakta mounts 
won't adapt, one of the pins (aperture simulator?) stops the adapter 
being connected correctly, but , as I have no intention of using the 
lenses on a Topcon body I just snipped off the pin, and now it works 
I hope to be trying out new/old glass on the 20D tomorrow, a couple of 
tests so far show that the Topcon 1,8/58 may just be a superb lens. Now 
looking forward to picking  up some s/h Rollei mount lenses - pretty  
inexpensive on the s/h market here in Germany, even the Zeiss models are 
considerably lower priced than the same lenses in CY mount.
