Re: E420 conversion adaptor

I don't think there is a Canon EF to Four Thirds adapter - but I could be wrong.

There are plenty of options for Canon EF to Micro Four Thirds though.

I think the problem with Four Thirds is that the flange back distance of Canon EF lenses is too close to that of Four Thirds.

But I can't see any Four Thirds to EF adaptes anywhere.

Ian is right, I just had a look in ebay & you can only get them for micro 4/3 not 4/3

According to a post in fourthirdsphoto.com the flange-back distances do not leave enough room for a Canon adapter onto 4/3
