Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

If you have a SLR or DSLR camera and other maker/mount lenses, the Fotodiox Mount Adapters allow you to use your lenses on the film/digital camera body. Sharing lenses has some distinct advantages. Certain prime lens just can't be replaced, and you save the cost of purchase on new lenses. Fotodiox offers a range of adapter from large format to smaller format digital adapters. Adapting larger format lens to smaller format sensors (i.e: large format to medium format, medium format to 35mm, 35mm to micro 4/3) provides excellent edge-to-edge sharpness. The smaller image field helps minimize the effects of lens distortion and aberration by using the 'sweet spot' or center of the larger lens image circle.

This Fotodiox lens mount adapter is made with high standard precision. It’s all metal design and polished surface is designed to guarantee smooth mounting and long lasting experiences. It allows M42 Screw Mount Lenses to fit on a micro 4/3 (MFT) system camera body.

Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, or any other functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. In this case "stop-down mode" will need to be used when metering since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot with manual mode or aperture priority mode micro 4/3 body. Infinity focusing is guaranteed.

Compatible Cameras (Including, but not limited to): Olympus PEN E-PL1, E-PL1s, E-PL2, E-PL3, E-P2, E-P3, E-M, OM-D, E-M5, E-M10, Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1, G2, G3, G10, GX1, GH1, GH2, GF1, GF2, GF3, GF5, GH4, Panasonic AG-AF100 Mirrorless Digital Cameras, Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC)

Note: The product pictured may have slight differences in appearance from the actual product such as color, font style, and/or other cosmetic changes due to improvements in design.

Confirmed - This does not allow for focus to infinity with a Takumar 50mm lens. There is definitely a "ledge" below the M42 threads (towards the sensor) that interferes with the lens/aperture indicator pin when trying to focus to infinity. I'm having a friend with a lathe take out the ledge.
other annoyance is the dot to line up the bayonet mount is on the face of the mount as opposed to the OD. A minor inconvenience but not a huge issue.

For the Takumars, (on my copy) the lenses line up when fully engaged on the threads so the distance/aperture markings are facing up.

The threads themselves are clean and smooth and the bayonet mount engages tight as an OEM piece/lens. The rest of the adapter has a nice finish overall.

Just wish that they did not have that ledge there or had two different types of adapters.

Nice little adapter. Solid and has a feel of quality. Works perfectly with my GH4 and a few old M42 lenses I have - Pentax Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4, Zeiss Biotar 58mm f/2, Jupiter 9 85mm f/2. Also shipped very quickly.

Adapter is well made...Does exactly as designed.
Small negative item - Dot on adapter to line up installation on MFT camera should be on outside of adapter instead of inside.
