    Hi all,

    Can anyone tell me if it is possible to get an adapter to fit a four thirds micro lens to a four thirds body?

    My camera is an Olympus E-450

    The lens is a Zuiko ED40 - 150mm f4.0 - 5.6R (micro)

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

    Thanks.

    No, there is not an existing way to fit a m4/3 lens onto a 4/3 body. The flange distance is much shorter for m4/3, so even if it would fit, it would be like having an extension tube on it at all times (or needs special glass to compensate for this).

    If someone made one, they would need to add another glass element to refocus the image. Similar to the problem people run into trying to use old Canon FD glass on EF bodies.
