    Trying to find a flash adaptor for my M3. All the big names seem to be out of stock, and I despise ebay.

    You might try above listed but the flash adapter is one of those tiny doodads that always seems to get lost, so supply is consistently diminishing. Unfortunately, your best bet is probably ebay, my own last resort for little items. Just be patient because some sellers have unrealistic expectations. Most camera sellers and stores don’t seem to bother with small accessories.
    Just the other day I bought a screw in lens cap for Summitar. Cap plus shipping was high but not unreasonable but much cheaper than constantly replacing lost push on caps.

    If you're looking for the adapter in the image below, I have a small bag of them here somewhere. Let me know and I'll search for them.

    I have no way of telling if it's the right one or not myself, if you'd like to sell me over, i'd still be interested in giving it a go.

    I can sell you one and if it works we're both happy. If it doesn't then you can return it for a refund.

    What's to be determined is a fair price. The only three I could find available anywhere on the planet are US$45 each or more delivered. That seems insanely high to me but I guess if they're almost unattainable, that's what they're selling for. I also found two which sold within the last year for US$45 each. What do you consider a fair price, given the money back guarantee?

    EDIT: I just checked USPS price for mailing a 2 ounce envelope to S. Korea... very pricey at nearly US$15 one-way. Because of the cost, I can't afford to refund shipping both ways but I will one way if it doesn't work for your needs.

    EDIT #2: The $57 price I mentioned (now edited) was Canadian dollars so one is US$45 shipped. The other one is US$39 plus US$36 shipping... an insane US$75 total, shipped. I know which one I'd buy.

    Excellent, then you have nothing to lose. If it doesn't work for you then I'll refund one hundred percent including two-way shipping. Given the link I provided, what do you think is a fair price?

    O-&-F, you are a class act! One of the reasons I read APUG.

    Thank you, guangong. You're too kind. There are a few members here who would disagree with you, though I've not had any financial dealings with them.

    Army35mm, how does US$35 delivered sound to you?

    the image of an adaptor that old n feeble put up is the correct adaptor for an M3 -- I used to have one until I paid Leitz to upgrade the flash plugs on my M3 to a standard pc plug. They used to offer this along with the double-to-single stroke adaption.

    More or less makes it into an M4, sort of, maybe, a little.

    Thank you, summicron1. Are you referring to the image in post #4 or those in post #6?
