    I've got a DMW-MA1 for my Panasonic GF1 and I have recently been given a Carl Zeiss Jena 75-300mm MC macro lens which I'm lead to believe is an Olympus OM fit.

    When it comes to fitting the lens to the adapter it wont lock on and the red dots will not line up. So I'm not sure if its the lens, the adapter or me!

    I've taken a couple of quick pics on my mobile.

    Any advice or help is most appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    The Panasonic adapter is for 4/3 mount lenses, not OM. To use this lens you would need a second adapter OM-4/3 and stack them together, or get a single OM-m4/3 adapter.
