    I have just acquired an Exacta VX camera (early 50's), with several lenses - a Zeiss Jena Tesser 50/2.8 and a Zeiss Jena Flicktogon 35/2.8, both in usable shape. I've searched for any help on m43 adapters, but no luck yet. Does anyone have any ideas? I have adapters for other legacy lenses - Pen F's, Nikon, etc., so I'm familiar with using them. Currently using an E-P5. Thanks.

    You could make one by removing the lens mount base off of the old camera and finding an adapter with the same diameter and switch the mount base, not easy if your not mechanically inclined but its not difficult if you can use a drill, thread tap, and a screwdriver!

    I have that adapter and it works just fine with my 100mm meyer gorlitz optic in exakta mount

    Received the Fotasy adapter today, and both lenses work great. It will be fun to play with in the future. Thanks for the help, especially Don for the link to the adapter.
