Are you looking for a lens for your OLYMPUS E-P1 E-P2 G1 GF1 GH1? Well, This C-mount lens to OLYMPUS/Panasonic Micro 4/3 Adapter is a must-have accessory. Specifications: Accurate flange & focus distance, made of metal and brass chromed silver C Mount Lens to Micro 4/3 Adapter OLYMPUS E-P1 E-PL1 Panasonic G1 G2 GF1 GH1-M4/3 Details: How to Choose Adapter Ring? First of all you have to buy the appropriate physical lens adapter required to get your lens attached to your camera. For this you should consult your favourite camera shop . But a number of manufacturers build simple metal ring adapters that let you attach various types of lenses If you've got, for example, a lens designed for an old Pentax threaded (screw mount) camera like the Pentax Spotmatic you'll need an adapter for M42 lenses. Same with the new line of Carl Zeiss ZS lenses, which also use M42. If you have a telescope you'll probably need a T-mount adapter, assuming your telescope has the ability to be hooked up to a camera at all. Or if you have a Nikon lens you'll need an adapter that lets you fit Nikon F lenses to your EOS body. Likewise Leica R, Leica Visoflex, Olympus OM, Contax/Yashica RTS, Rollei, and Contax manual focus, or even big Hasselblad, Mamiya 645, Pentacon 66, Pentax 645 and Pentax 6x7 medium format lenses can all be adapted. Microscopes apparently often require C-mount adapters. Tamron built a series of Adaptall II lenses and you can still occasionally find used Adaptall II->EOS adapters around. I have links to some sources for these adapters at the end of the page Most adapters are simply metal rings with an EF bayonet on one side; And since the EF mounting ring is larger in diameter than most 35mm SLR lens mounts quite a few lenses can be adapted to the EOS system Adapter ring compatibility problems and infinity focus The most common problem is that of lens registration - the distance from the lens mount to the film plane. It may not be possible to build a lens adapter that gets this distance right for certain lens mount systems For example, the back focus distance (distance from the rearmost lens element to the film plane) on EOS cameras is 44mm, but on Leica rangefinder cameras it's 27.8mm. Matching the back focus distance would require a lens mounted deep inside the camera body; not usually an option. In cases such as this you may either have to buy an adapter ring that won't let you achieve infinity focus or you'll have to get an adapter ring which contains one or more glass lens elements and which will inevitably degrade the image quality somewhat. These compensating elements let you achieve focus to infinity, though at the expense of image quality. Contax G, Konica F, Leica M, Minolta MD and Miranda lenses are other lens mounts with back focus distances less than that of Canon EOS There is also the case of lenses which have lens register distances very close to that of a true Canon EF lens. Contax/Yashica lenses (45.5mm) and Canon EF lenses (44mm), for example, have only a 1.5mm difference in lens registration, and 1.5 is awfully thin for a metal ring adapter. Such adapters have to be machined to incredibly close tolerances in order for infinity focus to work, which means they can be quite expensive. Cheaper ones often have to be sanded down to maintain infinity focus - but even that is something of a dodgy proposition as you have to sand the surface down accurately from one side to the other, down to a fraction of a millimetre Also appears that it isn't possible to make adapter rings that let you mount Pentax K (bayonet mount) lenses on EOS cameras with EF lens mounts. The Pentax K diaphragm coupling lever physically interferes with such a possibility. So you'd have to modify the lens (or the camera) to make such a conversion possible. Note that this does not apply to cameras compatible with the EF-S mount. The design of the EF-S mount, with its smaller mirror box thanks to the 1.6x crop factor, coincidentally permits the use of such lens adapters Finally, and this isn't strictly to do with manual focus lenses per se, but you can't use Minolta Vectis or Four Thirds (Olympus, Kodak, Fuji, Sanyo, Sigma, Panasonic and Leica) lenses on EOS cameras. These lenses, in addition to being autofocus lenses, cast very small image circles; much too small to cover the imaging area of EOS cameras. In theory I suppose the Vectis lens design might cover an EF-S sensor, but it would probably be pointlessly expensive to make such an adapter Package Included: 1 x C Mount Lens to Micro 4/3 Adapter OLYMPUS E-P1 E-PL1 Panasonic G1 G2 GF1 GH1-M4/3

Very good adapter. Smaller lens work fine and they focus to infinity. You may have to mod larger lens (file, dremel, or somehow else remove layer of metal from the barrel) in order to fully fit them.translate

Worked after some adjustments. I have an Olympus EP2 and I had some problems getting this adapter on at first. I soon realized that a small screw on the adapter was preventing the adapter from seating into the lens mount. I simply removed it and now the adapter works fine.translate

no focus to infinity. I bought this adapter for use with the 35mm f 1.7 lens sold on this site. I'm using it on a Panasonic GH2. It cannot focus to infinity, just doesn't get there. I do not know if it is the adapter or the lens but its a bummer. I cant use this!translate

Actualy review of the adaptor. translate

OK. Much faster autofocus. + Much less CA (chromatic aberrations) and purple fringing. + Much cheaper. + Still works on film bodies, but you need a body that supports aperture controls.translate

Lens Adapter. The lens is small and light and surprisingly feels great when mounted on camera, the quick shift focusing ring is something I wish the older Fa limited lenses had so you can manual focus at anytimetranslate

Great OLYMPUS Lens Adapter. I'm extremely happy with this lens. The speed is decent enough at f2.4 and the autofocus works fast.translate

recommend. Overall I recommend this lens as an excellent optic, well made and compact.translate

Micro Adapter. General advantage of pancake type lenses: The biggest unexpected advantage to this type of lens is something I just noticed accidentaly. When you dont have to carry a big lens around, you will use your camera more. Which means more photos. More photos means you learn to take better pics. Better pics is a positive feedback cycle. You keep shooting pics...Buy this lens today!translate
