    i ordered this adapter off amazon.ca from fotodiox for about 34 dollars+20 dollar shipping. I decided i felt comfortable buying fotodiox adapter, but im sure it is just the exact same thing as the chinese ones on ebay. Is there anything else i need to order with it? Also what tips do you have for mounting and use?
    thanks

    Which one did you get? The F version or the G with aperture adjustment ring?

    Fotodiox's stuff is made in China but with a higher quality control than the average generic brand. The adaptor is all you need to fit your Nikkor lens to a m4/3 body. If you shoot Olympus all you need to do is switch to aperture priority or manual mode and the camera will do the rest. I think you have to go into the menu with a Panasonic model and tell it "no lens mounted".

    Good luck and enjoy.

    thanks. I bought the f version, no aperture ring. I was just buying it for a prime and telephoto i got. This is my temporary soultion until i can buy the Panasonic 20mm or the olympus 45 mm primes.
