I didn't get that email.

More Amadeos should arrive in about two weeks.

I got my adapter (S to M Mount) last year from e-bay user davocam79 (located in EU, Italy), he's Amedeo's brother in law, selling his adapters on the EU market.
Main reason for me was to prevent the high custom duties for imports to BE.
Cheers
Giulio

NB his ebay username is amedeo.m (as shown above).

I have the new-style Nikon-S-to-Leica-M adapter and it's an excellent piece of kit.

Shipping is about the same time depending on where you live in the US. Amedeo ships Expedited Fedex which in my case was about two days once the package left Venezuela. Buying from Cameraquest you should have it in a week.

I see you're in the Netherlands. That complicates things. I'd check with Stephen about shipping options. You might have to pay some sort of tariff right?

I could ask Amedeo if your problems persist. He now lives in Miami.

Amedeo emailed me back a few seconds ago. The situation is not good in his original homeland, and he asked me to inform RFF this:

"My machinist spend to much hours finding food, everything is difficult to find, even the brass and chemicals for the chrome finish, have problems with the electricity too. I am trying to produce the adapters here too, but my business here in Miami keep me busy from 6am to 6pm.

I bought a Contax RF to Fuji adapter from him yesterday on Ebay. Had several emails with him and it shipped out of Miami this morning. He's a great guy and I'm glad he's in the US now but feel for his friends in Venezuela.

Thank you for the heads up Raid. I sent him a message a little while ago about another adapter project. It can wait though.

Too bad you need Nikon one. I'm selling the Contax - M one. (and I'm in SF)

Hope you can find one before the deadline.

Nobby, is it possible that this is what you're looking for. It's a new listing that he put up today.
