Can Anyone Recommend an OM-4/3 Adapter

I bought a couple of modified legacy Konica lenses off Xpres a couple of weeks ago and I'm hooked. I've a friend who has an OM1 and will lend me his lenses if I can get an adapter. I've seen the biofos write up and tried the jinfinance ebay seller (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AF-confirm-OM-...item19b006ac4e) but his is 37 for the AF confirm type whereas all others I can see are approx 20. Is it worth the difference? Any suggestions, anyone with experience of these adapters?
Here's a shot of my dog with the Konica 50mm f1.7 - he's the only one who'll sit for a portrait shot.



Thanks

Try look for the two part adapters so that you can adjust them if needed but to be honest most work if you do not want focus confirm

Chris,
I haven't seen two part adapters - what is the difference? I have seen one you get from Russia which does multiple lens fittings - I think they claimed about 8 different lens types - but it looks a bit Heath Robinson with about 6 thumb screws on it.

Re: Can Anyone Recommend an OM-4/3 Adapter

I bought mine from www.srb-griturn.com who offer a wide range of adaptors. It is well made and has not given me any problems. At 27-95 it is much cheaper than the genuine Olympus offering!
