Canon lens adaptor

Help please, I have a Canon EF 50mm prime lens & a Canon EFS 18 - 55mm zoom that I would like to fit to my Pen EPL 5 camera. Can you please advise the best adaptor to allow me to fit these lens. From some research it looks as though there will be a problem with the EFS lens.

I also have Sigma 10 - 20mm 1:4 - 5.6 DC HSM lens and wonder if I can also fit to Pen as well, I do not expect that 1 adaptor will cover all 3 lens, but as I am new to 4/3 would appreciate some advice.

Thanks

Pip.

Re: Canon lens adaptor

I have a bag full of Canon "L" lenses as well as a Tamron 150-600.
I'd love to use these on my E-M1

As far as I have seen there are plenty of adaptors for the older Canon FD mount but not the EF mount.
I have seen a Metabones adapter but its more expensive
Perhaps others on here could clarify

Mike

Re: Canon lens adaptor

I'm not familiar with the various flavours of Canon so I don't know if it will help, but a good place to start looking for adapters is SRB Griturn - http://srb-photographic.co.uk/ .

Who I have just noticed appear to have drooped the "Griturn" bit. Still look like the same people, and they are very helpful if you give them a call.

John,
They now call themselves SRB-Photographic.
See this page for an explanation of the "Griturn" bit:

... and note the comments about making one-off components etc.

Re: Canon lens adaptor

The EF-S 18-55mm has an electronically controlled focus ring so will not MF with M4/3, I have one and I've tried it. The 55-250mm, an amazing lens for the price, will not work either. EF-S lenses will physically fit an adapter OK as there is enough space behind the lens to accommodate the extended rear element but MF control is the issue.

A vote for SRB from me they've been very helpful every time I've visited them at the NEC shows.
