    Dear All,

    Instead of Sigma and Tamron making m43 specific lenses, why no company makes an adapter that simply forwards electronic signal (minimum manipulation if required) within the adapter?
    - Can't be rocket science

    Personally it think this will economically be pretty profitable :yahoo:
    - But I don't know if Panasonic / Olympus would like this :blush:

    Best regards,

    Joep

    Hi Joep,
    I share your sentiment. The cost of the MMF2 is just too high for my liking. I love to use my ZD50mm f2 macro and extension tube EX25 on micro fourthirds. I do not need AF but I DO need auto aperture. Now if someone just makes that it would be wonderful :)
