Thanks to you for your kind comments!.
I use the Polish one, but be careful. A colleague from this forum tried it on his SD14 and had a lot of trouble to take it out. In the SD9 poses no problem and properly focuses infinity.
Of course, you won't be able to make 30x40 enlargements without some loss of detail. Then again, who the heck ever makes an enlargement that big very often? !?
Stunning clouds and sky. I can see why you love the SD-9, Jes.
It was me who had the trouble with removing the Polish adapter. I cranked it on too tight, and it sort of "welded" itself into the mount. I finally got it off by putting the whole thing in the freezer to contract the metal, then with rubber gloves I was just barely able to get it off. (Whew).
Now, when I use the adapter, I screw it VERY firmly onto the lens first, then screw a little less firmly into the mount. Has been working very well by that order. The adapter comes out with the lens, and then it's easy to take off of the lens.
Thanks for the clarification, Larry!.
Probably the reason is that it's made in alu. After your experience I don't dare to put the adapter in the SD14, so it's has become "the AF body"
No, I don't print, but a local colleague that is using the SD9 as well and does print, says that converting to TIFF and upscaling to a higher Mpix count, (Photoshop does the interpolation) the results are so good that they can be compared to the ones gotten from a standard-sensor camera of much more Mpixs. I have to try it yet.
If you have trouble with the threads seizing on the aluminum adapter, you might try applying a very small amount of "anti-seize" to the threads before attaching to the lens. You can pick some up at most auto parts stores, as it is used to keep spark plugs from seizing in aluminum motors.
