Legacy lens adapters with tripod mounts
Nov 17, 2011

I searched ebay for "nikon to micro 4/3 tripod mount" and up came three items which are lens adapters with tripod mounts. Have other people found similar items elsewhere? Are the prices (30 USD or 20 UKP) reasonable? I remember my non-tripod mount adapter was less than 1/2 this price.

It's difficult to see if these would work well as they could be flimsy from the photographs.

A very good concept because if you have a heavy tele or tele zoom (e.g. legacy slow 100-300 zoom) with which you don't want to burden the tripod mount of your PEN or GF, a tripod interface on the adapter is the least stressful solution.

The other choice might be to get an adapter which has straight parallel sides and clamp it with one of the ubiquitous mock Canon tripod rings. Not too sure this would work though.

Opinions wanted.
