Kiron 35-135mm Lens Adapter for EPL1
I'm pleased I found this thread!
I recently bought an EPL1 and I'm super excited to begin learning how to use it and to experiment with different lenses.
My aunt just gave me her old Kiron 35-135mm f/3.5-4.5 Macro 1:4 lens. I think it's the same lens you have pictured here?
I'm curious to know what adapter you used to mount the lens on your Olympus body? And, if you could share with me what applications this lens will be good to use for?
If you ever have the opportunity to pick up a 105mm f/2.8 Kiron Macro, go for it. Best lens I've ever had.
This lens came with several different mounts. Ask your Aunt what make of camera it was used on then buy that adapter. Mine was a Nikon mount and the adapter cost me about $20. I hope this helps.
