    Hey there,

    So I have a Panasonic GH2 with a EOS-m43 adapter for my Canon glass. I just rented a couple lenses, including the Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L II, but for some reason the image is almost completely dark. The light's fine on my 18-55mm standard kit lens, so I'm not sure what the issue is. Anyone have any insight?

    Nope. Should just work. The adapter's basically 'dumb', so as long as the aperture iris is open (and you can't control it short of fiddling with the DOF preview on an EOS camera and unmounting it while depressing said button, and even then it's still locked down) it should work...
