    I've looked at these two as my options for a Nikon AI lens adapter, no brand, just generic. I tried mounting one of them and I don't think it even locked on to my e-pl3.

    Anyone have experience with either one? Don't know what else is available out there, one costs around 50 usd, the other is around 35. I don't know which is which or if the 15 dollar price difference is justified since they both look and feel cheap and tacky. Looking for any input to help me with my decision making.

    This is what the lens mount looks like on both:

    I have what I believe is a Rainbow Imaging Nikon to M43 adapter. It locks properly on both ends, though there is a little play on the mount to the camera. It is only a little more than what is present on my Panasonic 20mm. It does focus past infinity, but I think most cheap adapters do. I am happy with it considering what I paid. I have a Fotasy Konica adapter that I can't say the same about.

    I have the second one. It works fine. Perhaps not as pretty as it might be but the price was right at Amazon and it's fully functional.

    I picked up the Fotodiox at Amazon right before xmas for $21.

    No jiggle. Works great.
