  • Four Thirs to MFT adapter - not made by Olympus or Panasonic

    Can anybody recommend an adapter from Four Thirds to MFT which is not made by either Olympus or Panasonic, which are relatively expensive, but still are quality made?

    Second hand MMF3 adaptors crop up on here fairly regularly.

    Ps do you mean in-expensive?

      What sort of "quality" are you after?

        By QUALITY I mean that the lens stays connected firmly on the camera body and the electronics works perfectly. This was not the case with a cheap Chinese adapter I had some years ago.

          I've had the one indicated in the link below for a few years now and it works fine with a good tight fit. It is Chinese but possibly better than some or maybe I've just been lucky.

            This one works fine, though it's not waterproof:

              Rony,

              Like all others already said, the Viltrox adapter is a good one. I have one and FT lenses stay firmly connected to your MFT body. The Viltrox FT to MFT adapter is inexpensive and qualitatively well made, although it not dust- and waterproof.
              Actually, the photo dealer i bought my EM-D OM10 mk.II occasion from, recommended it to me since I couldn't afford a genuine Oly FT to MFT adapter. You can buy one for as less as € 34.35 ( I paid for mine € 55)
              I hope this review helps you.

                My Viltrox wasn't very good and introduced bad distortion at the wide end of my 11-22mm.

                  I assume that this was one of their converters that include lens elements, not the plain 4/3 to MFT.

                    No it didn't have anything inside. It was just a tube with electrical connections The distortion can only have come from the machining process, if that is possible.

                      My apologies for having mis-interpreted your post. The Olympus 11-22 is noted for its lack of distortion, so I'm puzzled to understand how a simple tube can introduce such a result, unless the faces are not parallel.
