So, is it worth glueing it back on, bearing in mind that the adapter will be then permanently affixed to the lens?
Can I ask what eBay supplier you bought it off. I was thinking of buying an OM to 4/3rds converter with AF confirmation from Roxsen in Hong Kong. As well as this I was planning to buy a 55mm reversing adapter.
