    Ok, I purchased a 50-200mm ED zuiko lens and naturally I need an adapter. The Olympus site shows a refurb MMF-3 for $99 but "out of stock". Ebay and Amazon have a few for well over $100 so I decided to buy a Fotasy adapter from Ebay. I have a couple of those for the manual legacy glass and they are OK. I wonder if I just wasted some time by purchasing this unit.... It does say that it's a replacement for MMF-1, MMF-2, MMF-3 and allows autofocus.

    Has anyone had experience with these units?

    Thanks!

    I bought a Viltrox a couple of years ago for $52 and it works just fine.

    Thanks, I saw those for sale as well, but I just could not determine which of the cheap ones was the best :biggrin:

    Neither are the EP5 or most of my native lenses ;) Also, at $49 is a no-brainer as long as it works.

    I saw a $39 Fotga on ebay last week. That seems kind of too low end for me.
