View Full Version : Need Peleng 8mm adapter to 4/3

24th October 2008, 04:23 PM
Hi. My friend have this Peleng 8mm wich want to sell. We tryed via my T-mouunt to M42 and then with M42 adapter to 4/3 and this not works with my Olympus E510. Need to find either M42 or better, directly T-mount to 4/3 which will work 100% on my E510. Any suggestion please.
He use directly purchased adapter with his Peleng to his EOS mount, and it perfectly works.

I bought mine, along with the peleng from opticsbel on e-bay - they don't seem to be listing it at the moment.

He answered, and he said this one ( http://tinyurl.com/6epmax ) should work 100%. But it's little bit pricey, as adapters goes around 10$. Someone to confirm this one really works.

Jucca, Personally I found no problems with using the Peleng via 2 adaptors, but if you do an ebay worldwide search on "t mount 4/3" it should offer a fair selection to choose from. Not sure how long the following link will last.

The only problem I've had is keeping the lans cap over that rather exposed front element. A little strap made of double sided velcro seems to do the job now.
I also picked up a wide angle lens hood (for a 72mm thread from what I remember) and opened out the inside of it on a lathe to be a push fit on the lens. I then cut down the 4 petals to avoid vignetting. It does help prevent flare and offers a little protection to the front element.

Got the Tmount yesterday from Ebay, but it will not fit to Peleng, it's much wider then Peleng's acceptance :mad:
Getting tired of fitting Peleng on my e510 :(

Done it, is needed to sand mount about 0.8mm, now it is perfect. Focus corectly to infinity. Just a quick test pictures, JPEGs straight from camera. Pitty, I'm at home, ill, can't go out taking pictures with this baby :(



Thanks all for helping me out
