    I have also never seen these before in Canada, Muzee!! It wasn't just you...

    This is frickin' sweet! The most frustrating thing about living in Canada is having to wait for weeks... up to an entire month, just to get a little mount adapter from the States! And they're such simple things, I could never understand why nobody would sell them from Canada.

    This is quite the selection now at Vistek... and my town has a Vistek branch downtown, which means that even though they probably won't stock this stuff they can order it in a week from another branch in a metropolis location like Toronto. Very good news!

    I notice though, that they flubbed up on some of the titles/descriptions, lol. For instance, they say the Panasonic DMW-MA1 Four-Thirds to Micro Four-Thirds adapter is "manual focus only". We all know that's not true. ;)

    Thanks for sharing this!

    You're welcome! ... I knew you would be excited ... I've read your rantings about the lack of adapters (available in Canada) before :)

    Ned, you need to get out more...there also available at Saneal camera, I think there in Edmonton as well. They are the largest Olympus dealer in western Canada so I'm assuming you'd know about them with your vast knowledge of Olympus.

    Nope, didn't know about Saneal. I looked them up though... they don't have a selection like Vistek now has, but they do have a Sony Alpha, Pentax K, Nikon F to Micro Four-Thirds, and a Leica R to Four-Thirds. That's very useful to know, as Calgary is just a day trip from Edmonton! I see they also have a selection of Zuiko Super High Grade glass.

    Too bad I won't step foot in a Vistek as I have always received such S*%+ service in both of their locations in my city.
