Micro Four Thirds to Four Thirds Adapter?

Hi,

Is there an adapter to allow the use of Micro Four Thirds lenses on Four Thirds E-System bodies?

I did search both on here & on google, but didn't find anything, which I found surprising - I thought info on such an adapter, ar at least questions about one, would be pretty common.


Thanks,

Mark

Re: Micro Four Thirds to Four Thirds Adapter?

It wouldn't work. The flange to sensor distance is shorter on m4/3 than 4/3.

You can mount 4/3 lenses on m4/3 bodies.
