    I just purchased a cheap carenar 135mm lens just for fun. Does anyone know what kind of adaptor I need to purchase for my EP3?


    Thanx in advance.

    I think those have an m42 screw mount?

    Can you post a picture of the mount?

    Yeah looks like an M42 screw mount to me
     
  5. It's an M42, but when you get the adapter make sure that it has the additional plate inside to depress the aperture pin when the lens is mounted. For some reason that escapes me you can get M42 adapters that don't have this plate which will mean that the lens will not respond to adjustments to the aperture ring and will only shoot wide open. The pin needs to be depressed to engage the aperture mechanism.
