I am in a bit of a dilemma and still cannot make my mind up regarding the Adapter to buy for my OMD-M5. Has any one got some good advice. the adapter's that I have been looking at are MF-2: MMF-3. I also learned that a new one was in the pipe line? I would appreciate any information. regards John.

The MMF-3 has a rubber seal on the mount so maintains dust and splash proof sealing with sealed Four Thirds lenses. Which Four Thirds lenses are you intending to use with your E-M5?

...then buy a MMF-2 if you have absolutely no intention of going out in the wet, or a MMF-3 to give you a weather protected outfit with the Oly sealed lenses.

Yes, exactly. I use the MMF2 on the E-M5 for my 9-18, 14-54 and 40-150. All work, no problems.

I know the E-M5+MMF3+14-54 combination is potentially splashproof, but this particular photographer doesn't like rain that much.

So the camera and lens are splashproof, but if there's so much rain that the camera and lens might get wet... what stops the rain from getting on the front of the lens? That's what I want to know :)

In such instances I use a glass of beer or malt whisky. That stops me going out in the silly rain in the first place. *chr

I find cling film works quite well, but only if applied whilst the lens is dry. I try to anticipate when it's going to rain and so keep my 14-54 cling-filmed all the time.

I mainly take soft focus shots with this lens...

Thanks for your advice all. I am not likely to take photo's in the rain at my age like the cars that were made in the 50's all subject to rust. the MMf 2 looks to be the favorite. I am going over to Amazon now and have a look at the price. *chrJohn.
