Leica lenses to m4/3 cams adapter question
Feb 10, 2012

Hi,

I did not want to buy Voigtlander adapter to occasionally put my Summicron 50/2 DR on my PEN E-P3 for $200, so I went to e-bay and bought three different chinese adapter in a row.

One focuses infinity when set to 3m, second focuses to 3m when set to infinity, third one focuses OK, but the lens fits so loose, that I am afraid it falls off. I am using the first one loosing the near focus capability, I have got partial refund for the last one and I am negotiating the refund for the second one.

If anybody tested some cheap adapter with success, please share the source, thanks.
Nice weekend to everybody!
