Amedeo 50mm Nikon to Leica M

Just acquired an S3 millenium kit - would like to use the 50/1.4 on my M240. Does anyone have first-hand experience with the Amedeo adapter made for internal (50mm) S-mount lenses?

Specifically, this one: Amedeo Adapter

Would like to know how well it's made and its ease of use.

Extremely well made. Worked perfectly with my 5cm f/1.4 Nikkor.

Beautifully made, accurate, smooth if heavy focus action. Lens lock is bang on, with no wiggling. Mine has no discernible play or slop whatsoever. Close focus is handy, and the mount even looks good.

If you need to adapt a Nikon S internal-mount lens to Leica M, this is a great solution.

The best. There are cheaper solutions, but nothing else comes close in terms of build and precision.

Bought one thru Head Bartender earlier this year. Works for inside and outside mount “S” rangefinder lenses. Everything about this adapter is well thought and well engineered. I bought mine originally to use with my M digitals but find I use it a lot with NIKON Z-6 where I can be assured of perfect in-focus with live view.

Though I realize you want just the internal mount why not get the one I reference for a few bucks more. I’m certain you may want to pickup sometime another NIKON rangefinder lens and the rest are outside mount.

Two reasons:
1. I don't like the reversed focus direction of the external/internal adapter.

2. The only other focal length that I use is 35mm, and I have plenty of 35mm lenses for LTM and M.

I appreciate the suggestion though!

I have a different Amadeo adapter for Nikon S to Sony. It's very, very high quality.
