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???

Thanks
Mike

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.

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