I'm ordering my FS100 shortly and will need to have adapters ready for my commonly used glass.

I will be primarily using my Zeiss prime set (C/Y Mount). Does anyone have recommendations for which adapter manufacturer to go with? And where to purchase?

I heard there was a bit of issues with the Photodiox and light leaks. Personally after purchasing a product I would rather not have to tape it up.

Can anyone recommend a C/Y Adapter to E Mount as well as a good EOS adapter? Trying to make it so my first experience with my FS100 will be a pleasant one.

I used a cheaper C/Y adapter first but it had light leaks so I returned that and ordered the Kipon C/Y NEX adapter and it works much better with no apparent light leak. Only issue was that the Kipon has more play than the cheaper adapter.

Think this adapter might be worth the price of admission?

Anyone with experience with it? (Dot Line NEX Adapter)

it's me again, I have the Dot Line adapter for my Canon FD to NEX and it works flawlessly, but FD-NEX adapters are much less prone to light leaks because there is no button

Seems to be a more viable option at this point. I can count on a return policy at least. Although I really just want something I can count on working out of the box with no issues.
