Mailbox: an adapter for my prime lenses!
Now I'm finally able to mount my set of prime lenses both on my Canon 550 and the Panasonic GH2! Received my M42 to micro 4/3 adapter and it mounted to my camera and to the 5,- Raynox 25mm without a problem. Awkward that I paid 5 times as much for the adapter than I did for the lens...
Interesting that these adapters are so wide while the adapters for my Canon 550D, the M42 to EOS adapter, are so thin. I guess the (bulky) lens on the GH2 needs to be further away from the (relatively small) body or it won't fit? Or does it have something to do with the (absence of) the mirror? Enquiring minds like to know.
