    I just received my second hand 35mm f.3.5 Oly Macro with the four thirds mount, going to stick it on my GF1 and the M4/3 adaptor is on its way. The first thing that is immediately clear and concerns me is there is no aperture ring, so how do I control aperture??? Lens is useless to me unless I can work this one out, can anyone help. I am sure the adaptor is not the answer???

    if you have purchased a 4/3 mount lens and are waitng to receive a 4/3 to m4/3 adapter by Olympus or Panasonic, then you should be able to vary the aperture from the camera.
    If you're wating for a simple adapter that has no electronics, you're in trouble.

    Thanks for that, I am waiting on the native Panasonic adaptor

    Just make sure you have the latest firmware as originally Panny bodies did not AF with Oly lenses even with the 'correct' adapter.
