    I just got a Fotodiox T2-m4/3 adapter that physically fits fine. However, the camera refuses to shoot with it and shuts off the sensor as soon as it's attached. I have a Minolta MD adapter that gives me no trouble. What gives?

    Ok, so with a bit of experimentation I found that the camera goes into this mode when the little button peg on the mount is pushed in. I guess the Fotodiox isn't letting it pop back up consistently. If I push just a bit though, it does seem to work.
