    when you are looking on an adapted lens and you find the same lense for different cameras like Pentax,Minolta, Nikon, Canon which of the adapter would you prefer?
    Is there any difference between those?

    I have used adapters from both Fotodiox and Rainbow Imaging, and other than the labels, I can't tell the difference.

    If you have no cameras that will natively mount the lens in question it then becomes a matter of price- which lens can you get for the least money? Adapters are adapters, one is pretty much as good as another. The only real worry is getting one with some form of aperture control if you are adapting lenses that have no aperture rings.

    At equal price, I would rather go for Nikon-F or Pentax-K mount versions, as those coyuld be used on modern bodies and will likely have bettter re-sale value...
