Just bought this from adorama and I am very pleased w/ my purchase.. for a while i've been going back and forth of either getting this or the Olympus mmf 1,2,3.. to put on my Olympus Epl-1.. you would think you would want a Olympus on olypmus brand, however you cant deny the price and the great reviews on this~ finally decided to pick it up and i am very happy. The auto focus speed was alot better than i expected.. in day light you have no problem (you wouldnt even notice a difference honestly), but in indoor light, i was very impressed at how quick it was.. not stellar but def. alot better than expected. nothing much more to say, it works, its cheaper, get it over olympus
I use this adapter on a Lumix DMC-GH2 with an Olympus 50mm f/2.0 four thirds lens. I needed the adapter because I got a good deal on a used four thirds lens. Coupling feels solid. Product appears well made. My GH2 can fully operate the four thirds lens, however autofocus is slow. I tend to use the lens for macro and portraits with manual focus. My only complaint is, for what it is, it's expensive, but it's cheaper than what Olympus offers.
Perfect for Olympus and Panasonic 4/3 rd cameras.
Tight fit on Olympus bodies, just like using Panasonic lenses really. Cheaper than the Olympus adapter.
