Re: Sigma 50-500 plus which adapter?

To be honest, any of them really, MMF-1,2,or 3, though there is little advantage in the latter if you're only going to use it with the Bigma.
The MMF-3 is weather sealed, the other two aren't. If you plan to use it with other high, or super high grade lenses, probably the MMF-3 to retain the sealing.
Viltrox, and maybe others make pattern ones, which are cheaper, but I've never used one. My own view in this case, which may not be accurate or fair to Viltrox, is that with a Bigma, you will be hanging the camera off the lens, rather than vice versa. I'd rather use genuine to try and make sure it doesn't drop off.
Also the Panasonic one,DMW-MA1, would do the job, but again isn't weather sealed.

I have a MMF2 and the Walimaex Pro one,which cost half the price. Other than one is silver and the other black I've not noticed any difference on a variety of 4/3 lenses.
