Adapters

Still considering an E-P1 or 2, but was shocked to see the cost of the Panasonic Leica adapter. Obviously there are cheaper adapters from China mostly and through eBay. Does anyone have any experience of who does good adapters at a reasonable price?

Re: Adapters

Voigtlander and Novoflex adaptors are good and somewhat cheaper than Panasonic.

The Chinese ones are generally OK - I have both LTM (screw) and M adaptors from jmfinance who sells through ebay. The only problem is that they are slightly short so focus 'past infinity'. This can be a nuisance if you use scale focusing and simply want to set infinity for distance subjects. I have just put a 0.7mm shim in my M adaptor and it is spot on now.
