how do you know it won't cover the whole sensor? have you tried?

i didn't buy the adapter, i just held the 20/1.7 up in front of the nex. you can buy the nex to m4/3 adapter on ebay.

You held it, and probably focused by adjusting distance from lens to sensor manually. With lens screwed in adapter the lens will probably be focused to infinity (or past infinity) all the time. You probably can adjust focus a bit by unscrewing the lens from adapter. But still, that gives very limited usage, IMO, even if it covered full sensor.

The adapters on eBay can be useful for fully manual lenses if they cover APS-C sensor. Focus-by-wire m4/3 lenses on NEX are IMO useless.
