Viltrox 4/3 to micro 4/3 adapter

Has anyone on here actually bought one of the Viltrox 4/3 to micro 4/3 adapters that sell on ebay for about 50?
I am keen to get one so that I can use my good HG/SHG glass on my PEN.
If you have bought one, please let me know how it fares as it is a lot cheaper the the Oly MMF's. It certainly looks decent enough.

Re: Viltrox 4/3 to micro 4/3 adapter

Mine arrived just a few days ago. I'm going to write up a full review later tonight, schedule permitting, but the short of it is that it works every bit as well as the MMF-2.

Bought one over 6 months ago to use on E-P1 and now use on OM-D.
No problems what so ever and its well made.
