NEX camera adapters: Variations?

I have about 4 lens adapters for my FS-100, but the fifth one is giving me the fits. Can anyone tell me if the NEX stills camera have identical mounts to the FS-100? A recent purchase of a Konica AR to NEX adapter has smaller lugs than any other adapter I own. It's the Fotga Chinese adapter (eBay purchase). The seller says it works fine on their NEX cameras, but they don't have an FS-100 to test it on. All I know is that I can't use my 40mm Konica 1.8 until I get this issue resolved.

The adapter will fit onto the camera, but will not turn to lock. I don't want to force it unduly and have a $20 adapter destroy my $5000 camera. Anyone have luck with other brands of Konica AR to NEX adapters?

Thanks.

I donīt know about the Konica, but I have 3 different brand NEX-NIK adaptors, and they fit all my E mount cameras (VG10, 5C) as well as in the FS100.
Probably the adaptor - many cheaper brands are not manufactured to the same tolerance as the more expensive ones.

I bought one of the cheep Ebay versions for my Pentax k mount lenses. When it arrived I was unable to make it fit my VG20. I diagnosed the issue as the flanges that locked into the VG20 body as being a bit too thick. As a result, it would not twist and lock in. I bought some small files at local hardware and filed down the over thick flanges, and after some fling and rechecking, they fit.

Re: NEX camera adapters: Variations?

Unfortunately, the Konica AR-NEX adapter comes in one flavor: cheap Chinese construction. I was hoping that someone is using a Konica lens with their FS-100 and can point me in the direction of which cheap adapter they used. The seller didn't specify that this adapter would specifically fit the FS-100, but it was compatible with all e-mount NEX cameras. Can't test that claim out for myself.
