    I have noticed that the Fotodiox adapter I have has about 2 degree play in it, I notice it more when a heavy lens is tripod mounted and the camera rotates under the pressure of the shutter button being depressed. It's a little off putting so I'd like to know what other peoples experience is with their adapters, is there any that are generally accepted as being made to high tolerances.

    The K&F Concept adapters are generally the second highest quality I've seen (the highest being Redrock Micro which I use for Nikon to EOS, which are perfect down to the grubscrews to adjust the mount to perfectly square even if the lens is off) however I can't find if they make one for MD to m4/3. They do make one which is MA to m4/3 however.

    I went through a few different ones adapting to EOS before I settled on K&F, their OM to EOS one is pretty damn good (no play, correct thickness, very well made).

    I saw a K&F Concept adapter for sale on a site in Europe, but couldn't find one in the states.

    I bought the Fotga adapter on Amazon. It works fine, but goes past infinity (as is typical). It has a small amount of rotational play on the camera mount, but does not move during normal operation with a 500 gram 135mm lens attached.
    The lens to adapter fit is quite tight fit, and there is no play there.
