Hi all,

I think of buying some OM lenses and I already have the MMF-2 adapter for my E-PL1. Do you think it will be OK if I add OM>4/3 adapter to it (way cheaper than OM>M4/3), so there will be two adapters - one for OM>4/3 and second for 4/3>M4/3.

It will be ok.

I have a few arranged this way.... for example, Minolta MC/MD -> 4/3 -> :43:.

If the tolerances not so good. you may get some infinity focus problems though.

Thank you panystac

I will check the infinity focusing before buying the adapter.

m4/3 - 4/3 plus 4/3 - x adapters

I'm using the Panasonic m4/3-4/3 adapter plus a range of manual focus mount adapters with no issues. Currently, this includes Nikon AI, Olympus OM, Contax C/Y, Minolta, and M42 lenses and their respective adapters. My adapters are mostly eBay buys and none have caused me grief (so far!). I went this way because I also own 4/3 equipment so I have more flexibility, and because the 4/3 adapters are thinner so they can stay on the lens.

The only lenses I'm using with dedicated m4/3 adapters are ones that do not easily adapt to 4/3: Leica LTM/M39, Pentax 110, and Rollei QBM mount lenses.

Sounds you have quite an experience with adapters. I really want to try that OM 24/2 and OM 50/1.8 on my E-PL1 :)

If you need a OM/1.8, I have one extra up for trade. Maybe I can even consider selling it in the EU.

Thank you Krang, but I think the transport for that lens would be very expensive even if you were in the EU. I can find it here in Bulgaria for about 30 euro and there is now way the transport alone to be cheaper than that. If we speak for an expensive lens or other item, things are different though.
