Discussion in 'Adapted Lenses' started by ~tc~, Oct 22, 2010.
How they work, what lenses they are available for, etc?
Couldn't think what to search on ...
Well, there's two basic kinds:
1) non-electronic -- this would be the kind for most formats, and tend to be cheaper.
2) electronic -- passes signaling through, so you can auto-focus, for example.
Examples of the former would be the Canon FD adapters; the latter would be the 4/3 adapters from Olympus (MMF-1 and MMF-2) and Panasonic.
The number of adapters available for micro-4/3 is so dizzying I'm not sure a complete compendium could be made. Suffice to say they'll take almost anything that was in production for any significant length of time.
Not so much a guide, but a compilation of what's available and where:https://www.mu-43.com/f35/legacy-lens-adapters-2750/.
