One question for the OP that puzzles me
If you had a genuine Panasonic 4/3 to m/43 adapter already why did you feel the need to buy a cheap one, sorry I don't get the logic in that one.
I bought the cheap one first. Then I found the Pany used later for a reasonable price (can't remember how much) and bought it. Anyway, I had a zuiko ed 50-200 as well as the 9-18, so i could use the 2 adapters. It just so happened that I put the Fotasy unit with the 9-18 and the Pany unit with the 50-200.
For whatever reason, the Fotasy unit does not function reliably. I forget how much I paid for it, but it's money down the drain :tongue:. The term "Chinese Junk" is very aptly used for a lot of Chinese made products. The QC and QA for a multitude of items made in China is non-existent. I realize that many fine producs are made in China as well, but only under the direct and meticulous oversight of the patrons. Companies like Olympus, Canon, Apple, etc. etc. Can and do demand, and get, good quality from the Chinese. Many others make junk as quickly and cheaply as possible to obtain the most profit from the lowest price. Unfortunately, it's a gamble to purchase these "off-brand" items.... To make matters worse, there are extremely few products available in the US which are not made in China....
